On today's Planet Money, we read the thing you've never read: your credit card agreement. And we pose the question: Does it really have to be so long and complicated? We talk to a lawyer who says yes, it really does have to be so long and complicated. We talk to a consultant whose job is to make it simpler. And we ask 4th graders to read a credit-card agreement and tell us what they think.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
