    Possible topics for this Sunday:

    Euthanasia — is it moral?
    Does Google make us smarter or dumber?
    Is the U.S. economy improving or worsening?

      Great ideas, Tom! Glad to see people thinking of new topics. The US Economy topic sounds tough. Interpreting indicators may not be everyone's strong point. Anyway, things get better for some parts of the economy and worse for others. Perhaps an economic debate on austerity vs stimulus, or raising the minimum wage, may be more doable?
