This final note on the way out today. Couple of quick ones, actually.

As you settle in for whatever football games you choose to watch this weekend, pause a moment for that yellow first down line on your screen. It debuted 15 years ago today on ESPN, which I thought was kind of interesting.

Google also turns 15 today, which gets us to this, from a Pew Research Center report: 56 percent of Internet users say they've Googled themselves. Which means 44 percent of y'all are lying.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
