    Good night Randi Kaye, Anderson, 360 and Fellow Bloggers –

    Enjoyed the chat tonight - and hope to see you tomorrow night - wherever the "road" takes us!

    Anderson needs to go on Ellen more often - good to see him laugh!

    Give Obama the benefit of the doubt – he didn't mean anything by the comment.

    Night all!

    I'm the mother of a special needs daughter who loves to bowl. I do not take offense to Pres. Obama's comments about his own bowling abilities and his view on Special Olympics being more his speed. My daughter says she'd love to have him on her team.
    C'mon, give us all a break and smile once in a while.

    I agree 100% that helmets work. I was able to walk away from a skating accident (fall onto asphalt) with only a few scratches because I was wearing one. The helmet was not as fortunate- it was split in half.

    Have a great night, everyone! I'm off to go craft a research proposal I don't even mildly feel like proposing. 🙂

    Loved tonight's show, especially Anderson's interactiveness with the students. I also caught Ellen this morning. Very funny!

    March 19, 2009 at 10:58 pm |

    Looks like it's getting cold out there. Glad I'm here in the control room, where it's only moderately cold. Great crowd out there, though!

    Well Good night Anderson, Randi, Tom and all my fellow bloggers!

    I missed Ellen today 🙁 I had to work! But I did see that video on Ellen's website! I must say, Anderson, I was impressed by your mad skills today! But why is it that every time that you appear on a different show you become the butt of the joke on the shot on your own show? Have a good night!

    Chat with you all tomorrow!

    Some scary statistics:

    "Each year 1.4 million people in the United States alone sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI). 235.000 people are hospitalized and 50,000 die."

    13% of these injuries are caused by falls – that's approx. 6,500 deaths per year from falls.

    Life certainly is fragile.

    It's that time again...i often wish we had two hours to chat and inform and educate each other.

    Good night Anderson, Randi Kaye, crew & fellow bloggers!

    AC loved you on Ellen.

    Please everybody, pray for Lisa Ling and her companions who have been "Detained" in N. Korea.

    Oh well, what can you do? I guess Anderson just doesn't have any boogie in him. Poor guy. LOL!

    Anderson and Ellen were so hilarious together on her show today that it really didn't matter that AC didn't dance – really great stuff.

    If Obama's bracket picks come out right I'm going to be really scared. Boo!!

    Aww youth in the white house....so refreshing! Michelle is an awesome first lady! What an experience for those kids today.

  26. Rikki, Fargo, ND

    I love the First Lady! She is such an amazing person! She really is able to connect with Americans...and with kids which is even more amazing! I love how the Obama's are making the Presidency and the first family closer to the average American...it makes me respect them even more!

    Mrs. Obama has a lot of charisma! Very approachable and kind…

  28. Nattada, Houston TX

    Michelle Obama looks great. She is so cute to ask "Do I have to introdu e myself?" and then the answer is "Yes!" I also like that she gave the kids some private time with her.

    Tell you what, our first lady more than makes up for the dimwits in Congress. What a class act! This woman is going to make a difference.

    I think our first lay is amazing. She is doing so many neat things. Kids are her priority, and what a good job she does. She is someone, that we can all relate too. Good work Michelle!!!!!!!!
