    In my opinion - Amber needs to buy some clothes that fit and quit worrying about the squirrel!

    Poor squirrel. He looked kind of limp. I think she was obstructing his airway.

    I think Elizabeth Taylor has given the classiest and most respectful response of all to this debacle being made of her friend's life. I guess he had a true friend after all.

    Re: the woman and the critter in her shirt...I now have a fear of squirrels. Thanks CNN.

    Good evening Anderson. Hope you a nice 4th of the July. AZ loves you. I thought MJ on saw two doctors. One that prescribes meds and the other to give advice. Thanks

    Will CNN be re-broadcasting the memorial service in prime time? I have to work, and will not be able to watch all of it. I won't be gettting home until 12noon PT. How long is the service expected to last??

    @Isabel, Medical Board...5 doctors working together shld give better care?

    Having competent executors for his estate ensure that his family and loved ones are well provided for. That's important.

    It didn't hit me until after I heard the press conf, Obama and Medvedev, but felt like a warming in US-Russian relations.

    So sad about Steve McNair's death. I got to see him play a few years ago in Charlotte against the Panthers. He was a great quarterback.

    Thoughts and prayers to his family.

    I thought it was very interesting to say the least that the first thing that Katherine Jackson did was to call the caretaker for the kids and ask
    where the money in the house was... and that she wanted to come and pick it up!

    Sad! Even Mom is money hungry!
