Another 360 entirely about the Boston bombing and the suspects. I know it's still a huge story but I thought there would be some mention of the natural gas barge explosions in Alabama or the garment factory collapse in Bangladesh. I would be thrilled if Anderson talked about the fast-food workers strike in Chicago and had a couple economists to talk about it. OTOH, there was nothing about the Bush Presidential Center and a debate about why they're calling in a "center" instead of a "library".

Anderson is still in Boston and relentless in covering every angle and snippet about the Boston bombing. Although I am tiring of the whole hour spent on this one topic, a few things stood out on Thursday:

- the new guy Maajid Nawaz had some really good information about radical Islam.
- the entire Toobin and Geragos segment was an excellent discussion on Miranda rights and the legal case. I especially liked Geragos dissing Rep. Rogers, the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, "and displaying such a lack of intelligence is mind boggling!" This segment should have been longer.
- Anderson praising the bomb-sniffing dogs.

The ending was also very nice; wonder if I could find Boston magazine around here.

Another batch of great photos of Anderson posted today. The more I look at it, the more I like the one with the light in front of Anderson. Wonder if CNN could use that in their ads?

I can only second Jaanza in what I liked about the show. I hope hope they have Maajid Nawaz back on because he had some interesting things to say and it was nice to have Toobin and Geragos back together.
The interview with the fire fighter was good as well. I think Anderson had some little hearts in his eyes when he said he was a great guy and when he mentioned the awesomeness of dogs. ^_^

The comment about dogs was sweet. :)

Anderson seems to have become quite the live spectacle out there in Boston.
