9/11 suspects to be tried in a NY civilian court

The Obama Administration is defending the decision to bring Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other alleged 9-11 conspirators to trial in federal court in New York.

Do you agree with the decision or believe they should be tried by a military commission?

Post your comments here, and Heidi will read some of them in the Newsroom, from 9-11am ET.

The Dolans are back This Saturday!

Black Friday is less than two weeks away, ushering in the start of the holiday shopping season.

While retailers are hoping more Americans will open their wallet and spend big, it's still hard to tell with the national unemployment rate at 10.2%. That's the highest it's been since 1983.

So what are you to do if money is tight, but you still want to buy gifts for loved ones and friends this Christmas?

The first couple of personal finance, Ken and Daria Dolan, will join us this Saturday to help tackle your questions about holiday spending and budgeting.

And they're not stopping there.

They'll also have tips about buying a house now that Congress has extended and expanded the homebuyer tax credit.

Plus, if you have questions about the Bush-era tax cuts that are set to expire in 2010, send them our way.

The Dolans will join Fredricka Whitfield this Saturday, November 21, in our 3pm and 4pm Eastern hours.

We would like for you to leave us your questions and comments.
