I watched 360 but really wasn't concentrating on it. I had just gotten back from Andy Cohen's book signing, I was too excited about that. I'll have to go back and re-watch it.

I will say The RidicuList was pretty amusing. I love how Anderson said it was about a person named Amanda Bynes who used to be on Nickelodeon and if you don't know who she is join the club. I remember when she was on Nickelodeon, she started out on All That and then got her on show.

I think the lead story has been over-done, but I think if there is no breaking news, they lead off with the KTH segment.

I was pleasantly surprised by the discussion on the Wisconsin recall. I don't think many understand all that was involved. Anderson actually held Alex accountable a bit. Now if he'll just do the same with Ari.

I really enjoyed Anderson's interview with Henry Crumpton. I found it very interesting. I hope he's a guest again sometime. A very intelligent conversation.

I was happy to hear Anderson acknowledge D-Day.

The Shot and List were both pretty funny. All in all a pretty good 360.

There's some talk about the possibility of Scott Walker being indicted at some point. One can only hope. I also thought AC's interview with Henry Crumpton on Al Queda and the drone strikes was outstanding--that was a good booking for 360.

Good for Anderson and all involved in continuing to honor and remember Gordon Parks--AC clearly has a great deal of respect and admiration for him.

Yes, the drone interview was rather interesting.
It took the heat off Obama's big mistake in NOT supporting Barrett's run in Wisconsin.
But it doesn't matter.
In November voters will think like I do.
It will be about the economy and whether he tried to help those he promised and the answer is, he did not.
So Obama has a handle on foreign affairs.
That doesn't help the collect bargaining issue here at home and all those who are about to lose their entitlements.
Obama and Anderson have one thing in common.
They don't care or support labor, and labor votes, in ratings and in November.

@ACanderFan:
Do tell us about your book signing with Andy Cohen.
How did it go and where and when was it??
He made the NYT bestseller list.
Good for him.
I will wait for my copy from the library, however.

@anonymous 9:11pm, this is copied and pasted from and e-mail I sent a friend about the book signing, that took place in Atlanta.

OK I'm going to try and tell you about my experience today. When I was standing in the lobby of the building with about 7-8 other people Andt came around the corner and said hi to us and thanked us for coming. Then around 5:45pm we were lead into the room where the signing took place. At 6:30pm Andy walked out and everyone clapped and cheered, and he smiled and thanked us. He then briefly talked about the book and said he really didn't have anything else to say. He then said, "You know I love a Q&A so ask me anything and I'll answer." Lots of questions about Bravo shows and The Housewives. Someone asked him the marry, shag kill question and he said he'd shag Mark Conseulos, marry Anderson and kill Mauricio (he's on RHOBH). Someone asked him the last celeb he hooked up with and he said Lance Bass. More questions about Bravo shows and The Housewives. Then just before 7pm they told us there was time for one more question (Andy had to leave at 8:15pm to catch a 9:30pm flight back home) so that he could start signing books and taking pics with everyone. So it was a mad dash for the table he was going to be at. Very unorganized (Anderson's book signing was super organized). They told everyone to get in a line, that didn't happen but as we got closer to the table they forced us into a line. I was in line for about 20 minutes before it was my turn to meet him. I was so nervous. I walked up to the table smiled and said "Hi!". He looked up at me and said, "Hi Sarah!" I said to him "I love Bravo, I love your show, I think you're very funny. I watch Bravo all the time and people make fun of me for it." He said, "Why do people make fun of you for watching Bravo?" And before I could answer it was time to get out picture taken. After our picture was taken I looked at Andy and smiled at him and said, "Thank You Andy". It just all went by so fast, but it was really fun and exciting and I am so glad I went. Andy is just like he is on TV. He is SO nice and very funny. I really liked getting to meet him and he seemed like he was genuinely happy to be there and meeting everyone.
