    Sarah A. Thanks for your comment. You have a good point, maybe a good argument for an increase in corporate taxes. I was thinking that sometimes people who make 170,000 a year don't make that much every year.

    Megan, my heart goes out to those aboard that plane in the Netherlands too

    I learned today that Stevie Wonder's mom gave him the key lyrics to Signed Sealed Delivered I'm yours today. Great to hear him kind of humming the melody. Thanks for letting us hear part of that concert.

    Very cute shot tonight – Racoon and all! We could do without the butt shot.

    goodnight Anderson and Erica...see you tomorrow.

    Everyone's been saying that the 5% of people who are going to see an increase in taxes is "sharing the wealth". It's not sharing the wealth, its economic fairness. The more a person makes the more they should pay. Close the loopholes for the very wealthiest in our society and the economy will improve because then everyone will be paying their fair share.

    While the job loss from discontinuing the F-22 program would be devastating, the more important issue is the sacrifice of American air superiority. It may be true that most terrorist organizations don't possess the technology to give the Raptor a fight, but it is also true that countries like North Korea and Iran are rapidly increasing their military might. These could be the enemies of the future, and the Raptor could play a vital role in protecting our country. In todays world, military spending is a necessity, not an option.

    I agree with you, Moose is a great name for a dog.

    Our last dog, one of god's wonderful creatures, was named Moose.
    A black Schnauzer.

    I love Stevie Wonder for years, loved the racoon bit, am glad about the dog (moose??)

    again, a great night on the blog....goodnight fellow bloggers, AC, crew, Erica, etc.

  31. CaseyJ - Palm Springs, CA

    I'll definitely watch Regis and Kelly to see and hear from the "real" Anderson. I hope Kelly keeps trying to make him excersize or dance (again).

    Excersize, dancing, and self-deprecation is GOOD for you, it builds character!

    Good night bloggers! Thanks for the stiumlating conversation this evening.

  32. Marium

    Boo...I have school so I can't watch you on Regis & Kelly. Oh well, I'm sure Erica will show some clips...right Erica?

  33. BettyAnn, Nacogdoches,TX

    @ Anderson~ I think "Coop" would be a cool name for a first pet. I'll see you in the morning! I am just laying here! night~night~

  37. Sabrina

    Thanks Anderson and Erica for the great reporting on the Stevie Wonder event at the Whitehouse. It sure is a nice change from the state of all of our other problems.

    February 25, 2009 at 10:56 pm |
  38. Esma

    @ Anderson, I will watch, no worries! And Moose is one of those names I wish I had thought of, even on a guppy that would be cool.

    February 25, 2009 at 10:56 pm |
  39. Jennifer - Michigan

    Moose is a very cool name for a dog. I didn't know you'd be on Regis tomorrow – I'll have to make it a point to check it out. Kelly is so funny. Have a great night – goodnight.

    Ok, Anderson!

    Today you are forgiven, but as soon as possible, please return to blogging with us!

  43. Chris Sosa - Boston, MA

    Anderson – I would, but it's at 9 A.M. That's three hours before my day starts. But I'm sure the good clips will hit YouTube, which is the best friend to those of us who don't have Tivo.

    Anderson, break a leg on R&K this week! You always do an excellent job (Dad finished Manhunt and loved it and will be recommending it to several co-workers–thanks again, sir!)
