The Return of the King (of Pops)

CNN's Don Lemon treats his crew to fresh popsicles with the help of Nick Carse, who runs the King of Pops in Atlanta with his brother, Steve. It's all to pay homage to National Ice Cream Day. OK... so the popsicles aren't technically ice cream. The gesture was deeply appreciated by all. Thanks, Don! You rock.

Tea Party Hot with Conflict: Member Ousted Over Offensive Blog

The Tea Party Federation ousted a major player in its movement, Mark Williams. The expulsion is because Williams, a Tea Party Express member, posted a "satirical" letter filled with racial slurs. Don Lemon explains the full story and interviews a Federation Leader, David Webb. CNN also spoke with NAACP President Benjamin Jealous for his reaction.

Your life, your death, your choice?

A billboard in New Jersey is breathing new life into the right to die debate.

The billboard reads, "My Life. My Death. My Choice." It also displays the web address for Final Exit Network, which is a private, non-profit organization that supports the idea that people suffering what it terms "intolerable medical circumstances" be able to end their lives.

Final Exit Network's billboard is intended for terminally ill patients, but many people are concerned that young adults who see the billboard will see it as a suicide endorsement.

The Catholic Church is also speaking out against the ad. The Newark, New Jersey's Archdiocese message spokesman Jim Goodness says it's "completely incompatible with Catholic teaching."

We want to know what you think!

Please comment below and Kyra will read some during the 10am ET hour of the CNN Newsroom.
