Letters: Creating a paper trail

While there are loads of fan mail for Paddy and Tess, not so much for commentator Peter Morici. Professor Morici gave a commentary on last week's show on how students drive themselves into debt by taking on perhaps intellectually stimulating degrees that don't translate into jobs that can pay off that debt.

Lynne Slater wrote, "Liberal arts is where students broaden their thinking skills and their creativity and hopefully, their sense of ethics." She pointed out that much of the economic troubles we are having now stem from business school grads.

David Lazarus of the Los Angeles Times joined Paddy and Tess for the rest of the segment to help answer listeners' questions. From unpaid magazine subscriptions and your credit score to merging credit cards with your sweetheart to learning how much you really owe on a loan -- this weekend's segment is all about your quick-hit money questions.
