I thought it was very nice of Anderson at the end of the program to ask people if they feel inclined to do so to pray for those affected by the tornadoes. That was sweet.

@ACAnderfan: You took the words out of my mouth. It was very endearing and sweet of him to ask people to pray for those affected by the tornadoes. I also liked that they are allowing family members air time to try and find their missing family members. I think that's what news programs and anchors should do - help where they can. I always used to be annoyed when newsmen went to a disaster site to talk about it but didn't do anything to help. To me it just looked like they were using the disaster for their own good, for ratings. Bless Anderson and the rest of CNN for helping. I will definitely keep these people in my thoughts and prayers. I am deathly afraid of thunderstorms, let alone tornadoes. My heart goes out to them.

Terrible the frustration of those trying to locate their families and not being able to do so because of red tape and misinformation with indentification.
If Will Norton was "sucked" out of the hood of his vehicle, as one relative described, it is hard to imagine a positive result.
So glad Ed Lavendera's report was a happy one, reuniting the lost dog with its family.
USA Today had a nice spread in the Life section of Anderson and his fall talk show.
Oprah was less enthusiastic, however about her "replacements" and is quoted as saying," Let Anderson and Katie have a go at it."

Is it so hard to set up a central information center to organize locating people, letting safe people call in to let others know, a clearing house of who's where and info on who's in the morgue and physical/gender info on who's not identified yet. This sounds like a lot but it can be done.

As bad as it looks for Will Norton, I'm still hoping for a miracle.

So glad there was a happy report in 360, even if it's just a dog he's still a member of a family.

@Judy - in Minnesota it's unusual to have tornadoes so early in the summer. Really does make you wonder about global warming/climate change

Just saw on twitter that Anderson was leaving Joplin. A girl said she was going to set by him on a flight back to N.Y

Does anyone else find it odd Anderson left Joplin today? Seems he was in the middle of a couple stories. People are saying he left for the parade on Saturday, but that makes no since, because he could have just flown there from Joplin.
