Anderson Cooper 360 Tuesday, February 19, 2013

While Anderson continues his vacation (Wolf Blitzer was in the AC360 anchor chair again tonight), we continue to take a break from covering the news of the day.  Tonight, we bring you the second segment of the Special Edition of AC360, "Hope Survives:  30 Years of AIDS" that originally aired January 14, 2011.  If you missed the first segment, please click here.

Sharon Stone opened segment 2 explaining her "AIDS Moment" came while working with Rock Hudson in a movie and soon after finding out he had AIDS.

In the second segment Anderson is back with Sir Elton John and Mo'Nique joins in the discussion concerning the stigma that still surrounds HIV/AIDS ~

We hope you join us tomorrow for the third installment of this look back at a Special Edition of AC360.


In December 2012, Anderson tweeted about the death of AIDS activist Spencer Cox.  The video Anderson  linked in his tweet is below and was part of interview Cox did for "How To Survive A Plague" ~

Jack Gray's book is available today.   You may remember Jack from his very funny Friday posts to the AC360 blog.   Jack is a producer at AC360 and sat down with Anderson to answer questions about his book.   The interview was posted on the AC360 website ~

Behind the scenes: Jack Gray and Anderson Cooper on 'Pigeon in a Crosswalk' 

You may know AC360° producer Jack Gray from his legendary blog, Twitter musings, or as the guy who crafted the "No Nudity" sign to urgently remind Kathy Griffin about her boundaries on New Year's Eve, but there's so much more to his witty and sardonic views on life. 

Anderson Cooper took your questions, added a few, and invited Jack into his office to talk about his new book, "Pigeon In A Crosswalk: Tales of Anxiety and Accidental Glamour." 

Jack reveals where he wrote his best material (sorry, Anderson), why he mocks his boss in the book, and the rejected book title that has a female basketball coach (somewhere out there) indebted to him forever. And Anderson recounts that time he was mistaken for another white-haired television host. 

For a fun read from a self-deprecating pop culture junkie with big dreams and an alcoholic dog, check out Jack's book and send him your review via Twitter @jackgraycnn.

Available at Amazon.com or your local bookstore ~

I'm going to check out Jack Gray's book, his blog posts used to be very good and funny--made up for Anderson's non-posts.
