The first report on Al Queda started out feeling a lot like the 'same old same old' so I watched Hayes' report on the lawsuit against the new North Carolina voter ID law.

However, Anderson's second segment was great. I was hoping he'd look at the gay athletes vs Russia issue and he delivered with a great segment. How perfect was it to talk to Greg Louganis? Anderson, '...so will you wear a rainbow pin or wave a flag?' Louganis, "I probably would." I don't want the U.S. to boycott the Sochi Olympics, I want the athletes to show up and make a statement. Loved it when Richard Socarides agreed about athletes protesting with pins or flags and his parallel to the 1936 Berlin Olympics. And heavens to murgatroid! How long has it been since 360 had a Democratic anybody on the show?

Anderson talking to Sanjay Gupta about changing his mind on marijuana and his documentary 'Weed' felt like filler. Last week substitute Blitzer already did this interview with Gupta.

I liked the report on Florida sinkholes with the geologist. Very informative and of course I took a personal interest because of the sinkhole in my driveway. In case anyone is interested, though the hole on the surface is about the size of a loaf of bread, the hole inside was about a foot wider in each direction and about 8" - 10" deep. It's now filled with rocks and dirt and will be topped off with asphalt patch. I hope that's it and it won't get bigger.

So what do other people think about an Olympic boycott? About weed? About drunken idiots ini the background of live TV news? About me wasting time and space on the ATA continuum to talk about my own personal sinkhole?
