I don't think I'm in a bad mood, really I don't, but I am sort of annoyed at CNN. I just don't see any compelling reason why AC is in the Middle East. Besides a brief tour of Istanbul's McDonalds and Starbucks on Monday night's show, all he's done is set shots for 3 nights. He could have just as easily interviewed Delia Gallagher, Reza Aslan and all from the NYC studio. In fact, tonight he did most of his talking in the first hour on the phone to people in the States. I just don't get it.
Having said that, it was great to see Anderson and Michael Ware reunited. I'm not sure what CNN's plans are for Ware, but I really wish it wouldn't involve going back to Iraq. No one has a better feel for the pulse of that nation, but damn it's just getting too dangerous.
In last night's post I mentioned that Anderson should visit 4 Corners since he's been so fascinated with the juxtaposition of Turkey on 2 continents. Frequent commenter Em emailed me a picture she found of kids enjoying just what I was talking about. Left leg in AZ, etc. I can so see Mr. Cooper straddling the monument.
