David Letterman is putting down the mic.

There's a coming changing of the guard at the Ed Sullivan Theater.   David Letterman has announced that this will be his last year as host of The Late Show with David Letterman on CBS.   So, just one more year of Stupid Pet Tricks, trips to see Rupert Jee at the Hello Deli, of that playful banter with Paul.   No word on who'll replace Letterman.   Maybe Jay Leno's interested?   Marketplace for Thursday April 3, 2014by David GuraPodcast Title: David Letterman retires from 'Late Show'Story Type: News StorySyndication: SlackerSoundcloudStitcherSwellPMPApp Respond: No

Overdraft fees hit a record

Marketplace - American Public Media - Thu, 2014-04-03 13:02

If you’ve overdrawn your checking account lately, you may have noticed a jump in the penalty. A recent study from economic research firm Moebs Services says the median overdraft charge reached $30 last year—up from $29 the year before.

Banks say they’re trying to make up for lost revenue. Since 2010, customers have to opt in to overdraft plans, which let you buy that $4 latte even when you have just $2 in your account. That’s cut into the fees banks can collect. Moebs says people are also being more careful not to spend money they don’t have.
