Good evening, I'm Anderson Cooper, live in Tokyo, Japan. Breaking news tonight on two fronts. In Libya, the question of the hour, could the United States, Europe and other parts of the Arab world about to be going to war against the regime of Moummar Gadhafi? That's the question because of a UN Security Counsel vote. A vote which would frankly clears the way not just for a no-fly zone, not just air strikes, but all "necessary measures to protect civilians from Gadhafi." We also have major new developments in the nuclear crisis to our North here in Japan, including this, our first up-close look at the damaged reactor buildings. The destruction, simply incredible. The question, what is going on inside the wreckage, especially, especially with the spent fuel that is not inside inner containment vessels. Workers scrambling to cool the damaged reactors. Struggling for the last 24 hours with that, and with that today...

Anderson reports on a team of relief workers preparing a second batch of water for waiting citizens on March 14, 2011 in Shiogama, Japan.
AC360 posted a "Web Extra" video of Anderson's interview with Patick Fuller of The International Federation of the Red Cross about aid efforts in Japan ~
Last night we posted an article about Anderson traveling to London to be part of CNN's coverage of the Royal Wedding. The source was from New Zealand and the times listed were probably local to New Zealand. (Sorry for the confusion.) So far we have been able to confirm that CNN will air a special live seven-hour broadcast ‘A Royal Wedding’ on April 29, the day of the wedding. And Anderson Cooper will anchor AC360 live from London from Wednesday April 27 through Friday April 29. We will post more details as they become available.
And on a lighter note...

Every afternoon I stand by a second floor window in the Ed Sullivan Theater and take mediocre photos of guests arriving at the Late Show with David Letterman. In the foreground of each shot is a wad of old gum I noticed on the window ledge. There may be better paparazzi photos on the internet, but this is the only place you'll find the juxtaposition of celebrities and hardened gum. Enjoy!
