    I agree stacy, but there's too much news. maybe too much campaign news.

    Erica, that engineer was working overtime wasn't he? or past certain number of hours? Shouldn't leave that out of story.

    Hope we're not all walking the street because of market

    Thanks for that story about the baby squirrel.

    Good night everyone!

    Shamefully I don't remember if it is African elepaphants or Asian that are hunted for the tusks. I saw on animal planet that 25-50% of these elephants bornare now born without tusks. This is an evolutionary change to protect itself which would normally take 10,000 years in only 50 years!

    Franco Russo – The republicans were the majority in the congress and senate with George Bush as president and they pushed their agenda ,deregulation. Remember President Bush said, "He had political capital and he was going to use it." Let's not rewrite history. Don't believe me, look it up.

    Suzie Orman question:
    Last night on CNN Suzie said she would not buys stocks. She said she is invested 99% in tax free bonds. She recommended the public do the same. Tonight on Erica Hills webcast, at around 10:45p or so, Suzie told Erica that everyone should buy buy buy stocks because now is the best time ever. What's up with this completely contradictory advice?

    I'm just so tired of hearing how they are the maverick's, how they are going to reform, are you kidding me. Don't fall for the same old story, I'm a registered Republican, but I will be voting Democrat, I'm so disappointed in McCain and the irresponsible decision he made.

    I dont think Obama is delivering his message as strong as he needs to be right now. I am a diehard Obama supporter but i still dont think he's effectively connecting with white middle class voters. I really hope he wins though. I don't think the country can survive John McCain as president.

    Never in the history of this country will the female vote make such a difference. As a man who remembers the day of the Equal Rights Amendment, now is the time to show us your strength. Please, this country needs a clear collective voice on women's issues. Sarah Palin is not it.

    Many thanks to Campbell Brown for her insistence that pundants and guests interviewees answer the question and provide details to back up their comments rather than allowing them to ramble in avoidance until there is no more time left to get the facts or lack thereof is revealed.

    Guests have learned that each spot of telecast has a time limit and they, if left unrestrained, will eat the time up on their own agenda rather than allowing the host to probe for the benefit of the viewers.

    How can you build a sport complex on land that you don't own. She should have made sure that the land was theirs before she started building. This to me, is not using sound judgment. Maybe she thought she could barracuda a way with Lungren, but that wasn't happening. I can't have a Vice President like her helping to run this country, and God forbid McCain dies, then we will be in real hot water, because I am sure, that the republicans have some bigger barracudas out there, that will eat her alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Part of the financial conversation that isn't being discussed is the war debt and the huge strain this is putting on our economy. And, let's not forget China that has invested a huge amount in our bonds. The long term impact from the Bush administration is going to be felt by our granchildren's grandchildren, and that's before we even start talking about Wall Street and the mortgage meltdown.

    If the banks would have been willing to work with people loseing there home and tried to help them we wouldn't be in this mess, as it stands now people who have been force out of there home, leave them trashed in some cases the copper is stolen the kitchen is trashed, now the banks are holding houses that they will never be able to sell. How did that help any one. Palin is bad news just like Mc Cain.
