    She should tell them to be greatful for their backround no matter what! no matter where they were born, in what conditions they were born into, etc. That is all I'm saying. I see she is telling her story, but it sounds like a negative spin to begin with. Spin it the other way! Meakness and humility are what make Princesses!

    I love Richard Quest! You should really have him on more often! He's a hoot! And I love his vocabulary! I always wish that Americans used some of the same fun words as the Brits...that way people wouldn't look at me funny when I try to use them! 🙂

    Well have a good sleep everyone! And a great Friday! Chat with you all then!

    What a great series of clips on Richard Quest! He really should be a regular on your show!

    Can';t believe it, it's time to go!

    The show has been very enlightening, and unusually entertaining (R. Quest).

    Good night Anderson, Et, Al, and of course fellow bloggers. It's always a pleasure.

    @ Rikki, thanks for the update, we have not heard much about Fargo lately. Glad you're okay!

    That is bold, cute and funny- Richard Quest asking for people to participate on his Twitter! I think the AC360 viewers who already Twitter will respond to his request. 🙂

    I just joined Richards Twitter "follow me" list. Wish me luck. Now if I could just find Anderson, Erica and the others.

    First off, I love AC360. I'm British (although I watch from Kyoto, Japan) and I love that you're doing the show from London, but please, stop all these 'jolly good show' 'stiff upper lip' references! This is the 21st century! Britain isn't like that and the British don't speak like that. And I don't even know what clotted cream is...

    I guess I'm old-twitter doesn't grab me so much. But I'll follow Richard. He's a bit pitiful.

    Isabel the market surge is a positive step toward recovery, though, and I feel the First Lady is "simply amazing" too. She's obviously enjoying being with the young ladies at this school, a very emotional moment for her. A gentle and genuine and inspiring connection with those young women.

    Megan, I agree the Obama's are an awesome couple and like Brandi said yes it would be incredible to fly to London.

    America should be proud of their President who became the new world leader today and of first lady Michelle Obama, who took the torch of becoming the new world spokesperson for women and mothers which was handed to her by The Queen of England..
