Breaking News worked in my favor tonight since I wanted to speed blog and I don't give a damn about Dick Cheney's health. So I'll summarize by saying Sanjay, Candy and Gloria all filled us in on the news that there is a heart that still beats in Dick's chest.Next up was some news that came out of CPAC. A clip of Glenn Beck speaking to and about Republicans was show and not only did he make a valid point about the GOP but he could have given the exact same speech about the Dems and been spot on too. Both parties are screwed up beyond belief and all I see is people pointing fingers but not taking action to fix things. Bill Bennett didn't agree with Beck and Carville didn't agree with Bennett so I guess that made my point.More Haiti news, mostly focusing on adoption issues. Gary Tuchman met with a group of women who are under investigation for trying to legally take orphans to the US for adoption.
Dr. Jane Aronson joined AC to discuss what she feels is necessary to reestablish a more normal adoption process between the US and Haiti.The next segment on the possibility of firing the entire staff of teachers at a RI high school, for poor performance, sounded interesting until the panel showed up. I'm just not a fan of Steve Perry so I FF'd though most of the discussion. I couldn't believe my eyes when I read that CNN had decided to do a series on 'Broken Government'. If anyone greeted that news by jumping up and down, clapping their hands and saying whoopee, then you need to be reading another blog, not ATA. Ali Velshi and Joe Klein joined AC for the segment.Best tidbit of the night? Anderson Cooper's favorite rock album is Elvis Costello's Armed Forces. Mine? It's a tie between Prince's Purple Rain and the Eagles Hotel California. Yours?
Brianna Keilar did the 360 Bulletin. I'm going to invoke an old rule of my mother's .....if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all.
A few more Haiti pictures. The first with camerman Neil Hallsworth and the second with producer Charlie Moore.

Now I've got a dilemma. I just wrote that I wasn't going to say anything at all if I couldn't say anything nice so how do I tell you how much I disliked Monday's program? Never mind, I guess I just did. ~Phebe
