What was the deal tonight?! I was all ready to do my first blog post of an actual AC360 show and there is no AC360 show. Apparently, someone didn't tell the CNN.com staff nor the person responsible for the CNN TV ads that their wasn't going to be an AC360 special tonight. When I got home tonight and saw Nick on at 8PM I revved up my laptop to check the CNN program schedule. It still showed AC360 at 8PM and the repeat at 10PM. Even the main CNN.com page had Nick's special advertised as 9PM. I kept flipping back and forth between the Patriots/Giants game and CNN hoping to see that all familiar gray mop.
I'm sure there was a logical reason for no show but at least change the website or quit running the ads! Of course, I'm still trying to figure out why Anderson took a 16 hour plane ride around the world to do a one hour show where 90% of the interviews were by satellite. I guess it was a knee-jerk reaction of "let's take a risk and get Anderson on the ground. If there is a post-assassination story, then Anderson will get the exclusives."
Even if we didn't get to see Anderson tonight, he did put his two cents regarding Pakistan back in 2004 in this Nth Degree:
Stretch Armstrong and Pakistan. What a combo. I looked up ole Stretch on Wikipedia and he was introduced in 1976. Hmm....Anderson would have been 9 years old that year. Whatcha wanna bet he asked for Stretch for his birthday or Christmas that year.
Well, it is the end of another year and everyone is looking back to the year that was 2007. Here is Jib Jab's take on 2007 to the tune of "We Didn't Start The Fire" by Billy Joel.
