This is going to be short and sweet for good reason, I slept through the program. Sorry. DH and I ate at a quaint little mom & pop Mexican restaurant on Wednesday evening and I've been paying the price for the last 24 hours. I'm past the ugly part of food poisoning, now all I want to do is sleep. So I've taken a few notes on the program while doing the screencaps and I'll ask you to take pity on me and fill in the blanks.
•Nice to see the short commercial format back again on Thursday's AC360.
•I'm glad AC continues to refer to Burma by it's correct name. I don't believe that the US has ever officially recognized the junta's renaming of Burma and I do not understand why reporters continue to call it Myanmar.
Not to be too sarcastic but there is hope that the Bush Administration might step in to help the Burmese citizens overthrow their dictatorship. Why? There is oil in Burma.
•There are no words for Bush's promise to veto the children's health care bill. Unbelievable. •I don't remember ever seeing Jessica Yellin report for AC 360 before. Is she new? I hope we get to see more of her.
•Another great report by Jeanne Meserve, this time on border crossings.
•I'm not enjoying the mystery at sea story. No good reason, just doesn't catch my attention.
•I am enjoying the Planet in Peril previews. The scenery and photography is just amazing.
And here are a few things that I found on the Internet today.
This Thursday's New York Daily News, a few notes on the EJ benefit by Rush & Molloy:
The evening was emceed by CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, who said he was looking forward to Elton performing with k.d. lang.
"I offered to do some interpretive dance," said Cooper. "But after a brief audition, I was told my services wouldn't be required."
Turning serious, Cooper went on: "I talk to young gay friends in New York, and some of them seem to think the AIDS problem is a thing of the past. … The reality is that it's getting worse, not better."
CNN.com has a special page for students who are previewing Planet in Peril, complete with homework. As part of the assignment the site says:
'You can ask Anderson Cooper and Dr. Sanjay Gupta "just about anything"
Well I'm not a student but I sure could think of a few questions I'd like to ask! To learn more here's the link. And people, behave yourselves.
