360 was okay. Anderson covered a lot of news and it was all done very well. I just don't have any strong opinions on anything in Thursday's show. There was nothing controversial or political.

It would have been awesome if Anderson had Fareed Zakaria on. I saw Fareed earlier on Blitzer's 5pm (EST) hour. Blitzer first had an overview of what John McCain told Anderson yesterday and had a short clip. Then he interviewed Fareed who had a totally different point of view. Fareed said the situation in Syria was more complicated than McCain states, it's very difficult to properly "vet" the nearly 1000 rebel groups, no one knows who will grab control if Assad leaves and the scenario McCain wants would be very unlikely without U.S. troops on the ground there.

Next time McCain is on 360 I would give ten hallelujahs if Anderson also had someone with a different perspective. Doesn't have to be Fareed just anyone who will state another side of the story.

ATA, thanks for the info on Anderson's upcoming '60 Minutes' report; looks like it's not about a celebrity.

The nuts who are sending these ricin letters to the President and other politicians will hopefully be punished severely for their actions--all this because President Obama and others are asking for reasonable background checks for gun purchases that even a majority of conservatives and gun owners want. The lunatic who wrote that vile letter is a perfect example of why background checks are so necessary. Really disgusting things are happening in this country now.

The teen murder report was just horrible--it's frightening to think these young girls could kill with no conscience or remorse. I generally don't care for Randi Kaye or Crime and Punishment reports but this one was just so heinous.

If Wolf Blitzer can give his viewers a perspective on Syria that isn't John McCain's, can't AC do the same thing? One sided reporting is a disservice to viewers. AC and McCain's mutual admiration society shouldn't stop AC from doing what he's supposed to be doing as a reporter and that is giving his viewers the full picture. Speaking of pictures--I'm not sure if AC360 mentioned the photo circulating of John McCain posing with known kidnappers in Syria--maybe it was in the bulletin, but I wonder if AC would even ask him about it if he had the chance.

This recent ricin letter trend if really scary. I hope they have a good security team at CNN because it wouldn't surprise me if one of those crazy people would like to send one to Anderson as well.

The talk with Sanjay was quite interesting as well and overall the hour went by really fast because they covered a good variety of topics.

The ridiculist was quite funny and thanks for the clip with the little banter between Jake and Anderson.

Looks like the next 60 Minutes report will be about homeless people which should be very interesting. That's Anderson's kind of thing.

I enjoyed the Skylar Reese story. It effected me the most because I'm raising a teenage son and a young daughter. Thanks AC360.
