Dateline NBC did a piece last night on the life and times of Macy Causey, the 8-year-old girl who drives race cars and rapidly is becoming her own youth sports national brand. She has a racing team, a web site and a Macy fan club. Like few second graders, she has touched off an amazing run of national media coverage, starting with a profile in the New York Times. Later, a live interview on the Today Show and then Dateline.
Did I mention she's 8?
I got a call from a Dateline producer and am interviewed in the story raising a point that is central to Until It Hurts: Are we allowing kids to be kids?
