Happy New Year. Hope you’re having a relaxing day, easing into 2009.
If you made a resolution, we’d love to hear it. Especially if it’s not predictable (i.e., must lose weight, must quit smoking, must spend more time at the gym). We’ll compare your resolution to Jack Gray’s …and go from there.
Tonight we’re following the latest in the Middle East, where Israel’s airstrikes on Gaza are in their sixth day. Today a missile struck the home of a top Hamas leader, killing him and possibly some of his family. Hamas fired more rockets into Israel as well. No new talk of a cease-fire just yet. Nic Robertson is in the field.
We’re also learning much more about a deadly snowmobile outing in the Canadian Rockies.
Five days ago, 11 snowmobilers set off for a day of fun in British Columbia. But their adventure took a terrifying turn when a series of avalanches buried them. Just three survived, and to save themselves they had to make a gut-wrenching decision: leave the others behind. Tonight we’ll hear the riveting, heartbreaking details from Jeff Adams, one of the lucky ones.
Also tonight, where the Obamas will live when they move to Washington this weekend, in time for their daughters to start school Monday.
Plus, Charles Barkley’s end of year brush with the law. The former basketball star was arrested yesterday and booked on D.U.I. charges. In the annals of making a bad situation worse, Barkley unleashed some cheeky commentary on the cops who cuffed him. We’ll have the full story and the mug shot.
We’re especially excited about sharing some of the low-lights of last night’s Anderson-Kathy Griffin extravaganza in Times Square. Let’s just say not everything went off smoothly. If you can’t laugh at yourself, what’s the point? That’s our mantra today anyway.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
