Friday's was an almost great 360. The first segment 'Sinkhole Tragedy' was indeed a tragedy. Who ever expects a sinkhole to open up underneath the bedroom? My favorite quote from the brother, after Anderson asked him to describe the victim, "He's a little weird but he's my friend and I love him." And just when I was hoping 360 would show pictures of other sinkholes (since nobody could see the one under the house) VOILA! Lots of good pictures of exactly what a sinkhole looks like and why they can be deadly. And kudos to John Zarrella for his excellent geological explanation of why sinkholes happen.

I channelsurfed while McCain was on.

Dr. Drew was really good not as a substitute for Jeffrey Toobin but as a mental health practitioner. He and Geragos had an excellent discussion about the psychology of Jodi Arias and of the trial proceedings.

I loved it when Anderson openly wondered why the teacher/thief wasn't fired. If the two sleuthing students found out it was another student who was the thief, you can bet the farm that student would have been expelled. Administrative Leave? What kind of message does that send to the students?

Maybe I just don't appreciate 12-year-old-boy humor, but I thought the Ridiculist was the worst part of 360. Maybe I have to stop being an old fuddy-duddy. Or maybe 12-year-old boys are a big segment of the show's audience.

Sinkholes are the stuff of nightmares--I feel so horrible for the man who is presumed to have died and his grieving brother--I can't even imagine how devastating that entire situation has to be for his loved ones.

John McCain is so disengenuous and such a fraud--to suggest that President Obama doesn't lead and then try to pretend that he's disgusted by the actions of his fellow Republicans is ridiculous. He's as big of a culprit as the rest of them. Jon Stewart laid McCain out a couple of weeks ago regarding Chuck Hagel--Stewart knows that McCain is a giant hypocrite in addition to being petty, bitter, resentful and mean and not the true patriot or maverick that he likes everyone to believe. Anderson apparently believes McCain can do no wrong. I can't for the life of me understand why Anderson worships him and thinks he's deserving of all this airtime to heap criticism on the President--perhaps it's because of McCain's military background, AC feels strongly about the military/troops. Why should we be subjected to someone who is still trying to justify the disatrous Iraq war that needlessly killed thousands and someone who would've saddled this nation with an idiot like Sarah Palin? McCain's seriously lacking in good judgment and character--amazing that Anderson can't see it. And where is the Democratic political figure that AC sits down with on a regular basis to discuss the current issues? Why is only McCain given this privilege? Where's the balance?

The Jodi Arias trial should be relegated to Nancy Grace--AC has spent too much time on it at the expense of more important news. To me, it's a local news story and nothing more.

The remaining reports on 360 didn't have much substance.
