Behind the scenes: Jack Gray and Anderson Cooper on 'Pigeon in a Crosswalk'

You may know AC360° producer Jack Gray from his legendary blog, Twitter musings, or as the guy who crafted the "No Nudity" sign to urgently remind Kathy Griffin about her boundaries on New Year's Eve, but there's so much more to his witty and sardonic views on life.

Anderson Cooper took your questions, added a few, and invited Jack into his office to talk about his new book, "Pigeon In A Crosswalk: Tales of Anxiety and Accidental Glamour."

Jack reveals where he wrote his best material (sorry, Anderson), why he mocks his boss in the book, and the rejected book title that has a female basketball coach (somewhere out there) indebted to him forever. And Anderson recounts that time he was mistaken for another white-haired television host.

Tonight on AC360: What will stop the violence in Chicago?

What can be done to stop the violence plaguing the city of Chicago? With news of more fatal attacks, we’re reminded that there is no easy answer.

On Friday, 18-year-old Janay McFarlane was shot to death hours after her 14-year-old sister Destini heard President Obama condemn gun violence in a speech in Chicago. Now Destini is mourning her sister. Her family says Janay wasn’t the shooter’s target, but became a tragic casualty.

Many have tried for years to help stop the bloodshed, but young people continue to die on Chicago’s streets. We interviewed kids who have no choice but to live in gang-ridden neighborhoods and carry weapons just to protect themselves.

When we asked them if they were afraid of getting caught with a gun and having to serve jail time, their responses illustrated why the problem is so difficult to solve. They told us that getting caught with a gun and serving time was a better option than getting caught without a gun and dying.
