I have no idea why Anderson went to Cannes, but the action it would seem was right here in the US and Rome.
The ONLY story worth mentioning, other than the one about the FBI, which is old news by now, is the death of James Gandolfini.
And Anderson missed the boat on this one because he wasn't home to report on this great actor's death.
I am quite certain that he was a Sopranos' fan and would have liked nothing better than to have interviewed him for 60 Minutes.
James Gandolfini, although he had his demons, was able to fly under the radar and still remain famous, and that is a gift.

Anderson's back! I actually tuned in 5 minutes late because I was certain there would be a sub anchor, that Anderson would take the rest of the week off. I'm glad he's back, it was a good show and I didn't switch to Hayes at all.

The best parts were the legal discussions. First with Geragos and Clark analyzing Zimmerman's all-female jury. They both said smart things but this could be sliced any which way and no matter what verdict they come up with people will say 'it's because they're women'. And second with Toobin and Watkins about the racist testimony in the Texas death-row case. While I think Ouijamo's statements were awful, I don't think a new hearing is going to help the inmate.

Sanjay Gupta provided the best unintentionally funny bit. When reporting on the auditory brain stem implant, the big brain made from a pillow made me laugh. Grayson was adorable and I hope the implant works well for him.

Thanks, ATA, for the behind-the-scenes video of Anderson and Conan at Cannes. I haven't seen any video of their talk yet but would bet the farm that at some point they debated who was paler. I used to watch Conan a lot and a couple of times each week he would complain how pale he was. So I'm sure Conan brought it up, probably early on in the talk.

The Exodus clinic report probably didn't need to be the lead story, but it was in-depth and well worth watching--those types of programs are very harmful and should probably be abolished altogether, IMO. I don't fully understand what Chambers deal is, he just seems ashamed of who he really is. Too bad he can't go by the example of the men and women who came out and are happy with themselves now. Enjoyed the follow-up interview with Lisa Ling.

I don't believe Trayvon Martin or his family will get justice. Sadly, I think Zimmerman will simply get away with murder.

The race-based death penalty was disgusting and the psychologist or whatever he was who determined that blacks are incapable being law abiding citizens ought to be fired.

Thanks for the Cannes clip.

There was a reason that the jury is gender driven and only six jurors.
I believe justice will be served, either way.
Women tend to be more sympathetic, but in this particular case it is hard to tell which side got the advantage.
Gender, race and educational background of these jurors will play a huge role in how they think and why they were chosen.
