MAY 13, 2008

Kristi Yamaguchi regained the lead during last night's Dancing With the Stars by a single point. The Olympic skating champ took the top spot by performing a near-perfect tango and jive, which judge Bruno Tombioli called "delicious." The judges remarked that the injury suffered by Cristian de la Fuente a couple of weeks ago actually raised his game -- putting him second. Jason Taylor was two points out of the lead after putting in two solid performances with the foxtrot and paso doble. Marisa Jaret Winokur is at the bottom of the leader board again this week. Last week Marisa proved that it's anyone's game as the fans voted to keep her in the competition while giving the higher-scoring Mario the boot. Tonight one couple leaves the show and the remaining three move on to the finals next week.

According to a new survey by Greyhound, most of us haven't seen some of the most famous American sights in person. The survey found that even though 82% of Americans go on a vacation within the U.S. at least once year...

Only 42% have seen the Washington Monument.
Only 35% have been to Niagara Falls.
Only 27% have seen the Liberty Bell.
And only 19% have been to Mount Rushmore.

The survey also found that 37% of Americans have been to LESS than 10 states in their lifetime.
