DC/MD/VA stars - Want to be featured in a newspaper column ?

A friend of mine is looking to interview people for a well known paper

Topics:
1) 401 (K) plan managers are reporting increases in retirement plan hardship withdrawals or loans. Do you know anyone who has opted to do this?

2) Credit counselors and other sources are saying that they have come across more working people who still have to turn to their parents for help, either for loans or housing. Have you come across anyone who has had to do that, as the cost of living has increased faster than salaries?

3) Anecdotally, I hear more and more people are doing extra things to make extra money in this economy: i.e. doing odd jobs like helping people move, selling possessions on the internet or in yard sales, getting a part-time side job. Have you heard of any people who have come up with interesting ways to make extra money?

The catch is that these people would have to live either in D.C., Maryland or Virgina.

I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flight, I divide …
