Sound Off: Your comments 3/20/09

Editor's Note: After Friday night’s AC360°, we received a lot of comments on a variety of topics. Viewers enjoyed the segment on the “first garden” with Michelle Obama and are looking forward to updates on its progress. Many of you are still wondering why giving the taxpayers money, is not an option to stimulate the economy. On the death of Natasha Richardson, many of you hope that this will bring up a discussion of the importance of helmets. What do you think?

Hi- What a lost opportunity. In tonight's story on Michelle Obama's new garden, you didn't even mention that it will be organic. You could have at least spent a couple of sentences explaining what growing organically means and why it's important to the Obama’s. You totally skirted the issue and only mentioned the word "organic" in reference to Alice Walters. You really missed a "teachable moment"- where you could have educated the average CNN viewer about the fact that many people, including our own First Lady, are concerned about the hazards of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers to our health and our environment, and that there are safe natural alternatives to the use of these toxic chemicals.

Thanks so much for doing the story about the First Lady starting a garden. I plan to have a large garden this year. Please continue to update us every week on the progress of the garden. I can't wait to see how it goes. Perhaps, you could schedule a weekly segment titled: The Whitehouse garden and the First Lady.

Money would be flowing in banks if they would get off their hands and work on the paper work to get houses sold. Houses are setting and you cannot buy them because they are cause up in red tape.

While watching your recent coverage on the tragic death of Natasha Richardson, I remain hopeful that your coverage in the days to come will focus more on helmet use to prevent such potentially fatal skiing injuries and less on the liability of emergency care workers post-injury. My thoughts are with Ms. Richardson's family during this extremely difficult time.

    The series’ Road to Rescue ‘was very well done and interesting!
    It was very good to know how each part of the country is dealing with the crisis.
    For me, it was still better, I knew more America. I work with outsourcing, then I met my client more too!
    Thank you!
