360 was pretty good other than the Michael Jackson garbage, which is a commplete waste of airtime.

Herman Cain is crazy. Why is he saying all that stuff if he doesn't have facts to back it up. Makes him look unreliable.

Good report by Gary. Its ridiculous that tax payers are playing for an airport that will primarily be used by a seafood company. I think Trident needs to pay for it since they'll be the ones using it the most.

360 was okay. The best parts were Gary Tuchman's report about the new airport for the Trident fish company, the goofy dogs in The Shot and the Ridiculist.

Not only are there a gazillion better ways to spend $39,000, the backpack doesn't even look all that great. Furthermore, the Olson twins - successful businesswomen, yes - never look like they're enjoying all the money they've made. Also, I believe they will end up like those Jackie Kennedy cousins, living a sad, crazy and isolated life in Grey Gardens.

The segment on Steven Jobs was touching but I couldn't help feeling that it was included just because they didn't have time for it yesterday. And then the unnecessary Jackson doctor trial report. Die-hard jackson fans are watching HLN for the trial news, not 360.

@Jaanza --

I have to disagree with you about the Steve Jobs segment. I found it very interesting. The news of Job's death broke right before 360 started at 8pm last night. It takes awhile to put segments together. The Steve Jobs news was all over the morning programs today and also on the local news. He had an incredible mind that impacted millions of people on a daily basis. He will be missed. His humble beginnings were interesting and inspiring.

Herman Cain is a bucket of crazy and it's scary to think he's jumping to the lead of the republican polls. I hope Anderson and AC360 keeps calling out these people. I hope it inspires sane voters to make an effort to get out the vote.

I liked all of 360 tonight with the exception of the MJ trial, but I think we're stuck with that segment until the trial ends. I only hope it's soon.

My favorite part of the RidicuList was when Anderson pointed out that the cost was the same as the average beginning teacher's salary. Ouch -- and what a sad statement on the screwed up priorities of our society.

People should start to take Herman Cain a bit more seriously.
Not that I would vote for him, but he may well be the "last man standing," for the Republicans.
And he'd make the race interesting.
Two Afro-American men running. It would, indeed be a first.
All of them now are just so boring and even Obama has lost some of his luster.
He presents things that don't happen, like the jobs bill. He doesn't push back even though he knows he has to, so nobody is listening anymore.
Yes, tax the rich. Most of the millionaires, including Bill Maher and Jon Stewart, think they ought to be taxed more percentage wise.
And while this may appear to be a Socialistic ideology, so is the aspect of Social Security that has worked quite well all these years.
@Jaanza: The article is in TV Guide this week, October 10th.
I left out that they all want to be Merv Griffin who made most of his money inventing successful game shows, an innovator of his time.
Thought I had signed the post prior. Forgot.

@Jenn: Yes, Herman Cain is a bucket full of crazy, but the entire Tea Party is a "bucket full of crazy," so what else is new?

@Judy - Anderson also thinks the same way as Bill Maher and Jon Stewart. I can't remember which interview he was talking about it, but he said he feels the rich (and he specifically said he included himself) should be taxed more before the poor are taxed more or programs are cut!
