Blogs, Facebook, Twitter or just general conversation - the hot topic is the new mammogram recommendations announced earlier this week.

This morning at 9 ET in the CNN Newsroom, we will devote a half-hour to health care and speak live with a doctor who will answer your questions as we try to get to the bottom of this mammogram controversy. If you have a question you'd like the doctor to address, you can post it here.

Wake up with CNN Saturday Morning...

Producers, writers and bookers are hard at work preparing a great show for you this weekend. Here's a little bit of what we have on tap... A weekend of protests. We'll take a look at what we can expect when the "Tea Party express" rolls into Washington to rally against what they call out of control government and "Obama care".

As you know President Obama gave more details about his health care plan earlier this week. Did his speech change your opinion either way? What did you think of Republican Congressman Joe Wilson's outburst? It came after Obama said extending health care to all Americans who seek it would not mean insuring illegal immigrants. We want to hear your thoughts. We may read some of your responses on-air.

Plus, our T.J. Holmes talks with Jeanne Ashe, the wife of late tennis great Arthur Ashe. They discuss the U.S. Open and her husband’s impact on the game and the diversity within the sport.

And, this weekend marks the one year anniversary of Hurricane Ike. Our Betty Nguyen traveled to Galveston, Texas. She spoke with the city's mayor about recovery efforts and how much longer it will take to fully rebuild.

Also on our radar, the gender controversy surrounding world-champion South African runner Caster Semenya. Should she be disqualified from future events? Is she being treated fairly? Tell us what you think. Weigh in on our our blog.

You can see these stories and so much more Saturday starting at 6am ET/3am PT right here on CNN Saturday morning with T.J. Holmes, Betty Nguyen and Reynolds Wolf.
