    @David Gergen. I'm not ready to make the call on your question (I'm still thinking about it and I'm no expert).

    Good night bloggers! Thanks 360!

    Kind of tough on Roland Burris.

    Wow Erica, Obviously I didn't know you're a justice of the peace, is that the right title? I'll keep that in mind. Very nice wedding moment there.

    Goodnight John, Erica. Good night Megan. Good night everyone.

    Ashley – Think Cooper might let out the occasional “OMG,” just maybe not on here.

    That would be way too cute.

    Kids in my daughter's second grade class has mobile devices!! They are 7-years-old! I talk to parents who says it is necessary because of their busy schedules. My thought- there's nothing that important that my child needs a cell phone

    I say the girls who first sent the pics to the boys should be charged with distribution of child pornography, since they were the providers of the content. If they boys will be charged with having child pornography so should the girls who sent them.

    CaseyJ, 100% agreement in the sexting issue. Parents need to set boundaries. I have spoken to parents who refused to give their children texting access on their cellphones (yes, it's possible!). 13 years old is too young to be incarcerated, but not too young to be sentenced to community service and sessions on respecting others (instead of sending nude pics of them).

    Don't know if I believe in UFOs or not. I did see something truly strange back while I was in college, but I was in a... let's just say 'Michael Phelps' state, so I can't entirely attest to what I experienced.

    Thanks for anchoring King. You can fill in for Coop any day. Great to have you in the chair (we know it's not the "actual" chair...go with the metaphor.)

    Hill, great as always.

    See you all tomorrow night at the money summit. Stay safe and thank you all!

    Erica, next time you see Ali, ask him about all the tax benefits you are now entitled to as a Reverend. I am not kidding either.

    You did a great job marrying them, Erica.
    I did not know you can get that online, too.

    Good night everyone.

    Wow- that is so cool Erica. Nice job. I'm sure that couple was very happy with their ceremony.

    So ... what do you charge Erica? If I ever get married – I'll have to look into that.
