Assignment America


Sorry, voting is now closed. The winning story will be revealed Monday night at 6:30 p.m. ET on the CBS Evening News. And tune in to catch Steve Hartman's report on Friday.

The police academy is generally a young man's calling. But that hasn't stopped Ed Frado - Florida's 63-year-old rookie cop. Send Steve to meet him.

How much would you spend for a vanity license plate? In Delaware, they're going for six figures - and that's without a car attached. Steve can find out why.

Or send Steve to investigate a more humble means of transport. He could meet a couple traveling around the world - by mule. Good luck with the Pacific.
