    Will Anderson be available for a photo this evening? It would really lift my spirit.

    The Execs must think Americans are stupid! So many have lost so much and they are getting more ! Can't believe they are comfortable with their own skin and consciouse.

    I really appreciate you as an ancho man, your show give us viewers a wide sweep of of the breaking news while it's occuring. You have intense powerful insights into the people you interview, and get right to the heart of any situation. Your energy level amazes me, you're always on the spot of covering a disaster in the worst of circumstances. You are a true cultural observer with enormous compassion for the victums involved in a disaster. That really means a lot to me. There's not an ounce of phoniness or arrogance I've ever seen you project on to anyone. It's great to see a genuine person as youself a news informer.

    5 Cities in 5 Days...

    I've been trying to find a way to pull through this economic crisis. It's impossible and I may become homeless within the next month – along with my two teenage boys. My landlord won't work with me and let me pay him so much weekly, which makes it hard since my electric bill has been pushing $400 for the past few months! I'm single and a waitress...my hours were cut thanks to this economy, and I had no luck finding a second job. Becoming a grandmother for the first time this past December should be a happy time...instead of this stressful!

    To make matters worse, here in Pennsylvania they can put your child in juvenile detention even when there are no charges! It infuriates me, because they have had my son for 2 months based on charges that might be filed...but aren't going to be any longer! Seems juveniles in the good ole state of PA aren't entitled to the same civil rights as adults...go figure. Since they have him, they took me for support and said that it's my financial responsibility to pay back some of the money it costs to keep him. I informed them that I'm already in the negative and they told me that it's not their problem. They don't take into consideration the other child at home – OR any living expenses! My problem is that if they want to keep him...they should have made sure there were going to be charges against him. Just sounds a little fishy to me. Now, I'm losing my home...my sons are losing their home...and the state doesn't care as long as they get their support money.

    I really don't see any improvement to this economic tragedy...it's apparent that the government is doing much to help. The rich are getting richer...the poor are getting poorer...it's the way it's always been and the way it probably will stay!

    Terrific job. The only way to bring this home is by doing what you are doing. We are all feeling the pain. Thanks

    Anderson does a great job. It is unacceptable that 75 million was available for housing those displaced by Katrina when people are homeless and hurting and they built one cottage??!!. I am hopeful Obama will demonstrate better leadership on Stimulus money and require some smart and responsive oversight for the stimulus money put those dollars to work ASAP

    why dont you or someone from your network come back to galveston island where hurricane ike make a direct hit. little do people know that two of the top three natural disasters happened on galveston island–with ike being number three–we have volunteers from all over the country and we need more–we have become lost in the system because the timing of this storm coincided with the rediculous election coverage and tough economic times
    come to galveston andersen

    thanks danny

    Hi anderson...I love the show and was very surprised to see the "success stories during these times"...seems all gloomy these days but my small business is actually on it's 3rd expansion in less then 2 years.....this friday is the grand opening for the "one stop workshop" addition to my resale shop "cheap thrills" in Phoenix,Az........we have been helping people change up their homes at a really cheap rate....it's a true recycle system. we help them redecorate their homes with resale items, change the stuff they already have to make it new again and hook them up with craftspeople to take on the larger jobs. we also help people that have to downsize with purchasing their goods, we resell it in the shop or donate what we can't use to local charity shops. it is truly a win win deal for all of us.......and we can not stop growing, even now!!
    (Oh yeah the bank did not want to lend us any cash or give us credit so we did it on our own. )
    But hats off to you guys for letting others know that it is not all gloom and doom these days......well my mortgage company is lame too but that's another story......back to the good stuff........anyway we thank you for the support of being an honest, gutsy kinda guy in the newsworld.....and for keeping us informed. best of luck to yopu and the crew at CNN........happy st pats day!!
