Kyra & The Drug Smuggler

It's not every day you get to talk to a (former) drug smuggler at length. So we were pretty intrigued when our booker Karen landed Brian O'Dea.

Brian was arrested in 1990, and convicted of importing 75 TONS of marijuana into the United States. He got 10 years for it.

He's now an author and film/tv producer, who tries to help young people caught up in addictions.

Tiger Woods' Sponsors

On Friday, Tiger Woods said he’d be taking "an indefinite break from professional golf."

On Sunday, Accenture became the first major sponsor to drop him.

"Given the circumstances of the last two weeks, after careful consideration and analysis, the company has determined that he is no longer the right representative for its advertising," Accenture said in a statement posted on its web site.

Another major sponsor, Gillette, said Saturday it was "limiting" Woods' role in its marketing programs to give him the privacy to work on family relationships.

Prior to Friday's announcement, Woods’ sponsors, which include Gillette, Nike, Gatorade and Electronic Arts, had pledged their support of Woods and decided to keep the golfer as their spokesman.

Here’s our question – if you were one of these companies that sponsors Tiger Woods, what would you do?

Post your comments here. Heidi will read some of them in the 10a hour of the Newsroom.
