Romance/Sex in the Workplace

Comedian David Letterman's admission to engaging in sexual relationships with female members of his staff raises the question about romance/sex in the workplace.

What's appropriate? Is it ever appropriate? What are the rules? Some argue that even though it was consensual in Letterman's case, lines were still crossed because of the power he holds.

Still, the workplace, like church and school, is where many couples meet and sometimes go on to get married.

This Saturday at 4pm ET, we'll explore the issue from a legal, ethical and practical perspective.

We want to know from you, what are your feelings about relationships in the workplace and what should the rules be?

Leave us your questions, comments and iReports.

Afghanistan: What's Changed?

Today marks eight years since the start of the war in Afghanistan. It's a war set in motion by the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001. President Obama  is meeting today with his national security team to determine a strategy for Afghanistan.

A request for thousands more U.S. troops is expected, but as we mark the anniversary of this conflict, how has the picture changed in the last eight years?

Does the battle in Afghanistan look any different than it did when the U.S. first began its counterterrorism efforts? We want to hear from you. Give us your feedback and we’ll read some of your thoughts on CNN Newsroom with Heidi Collins from 9am-11am.
