America's Children Choose Barbie's Latest Career: Anchorwoman

The WSJ reports that "Barbie's maker, Mattel Inc., thought it would be interesting to ask young girls who visited the Web site to vote on what the doll's next career should be. Mattel gave them a choice of architect, anchorwoman, computer engineer, environmentalist and surgeon. All told, more than 600,000 votes were cast during a four-week period this past winter."

And "overwhelmingly," the girls voted for Barbie to become an anchorwoman.
