    In a place born and raised, and still reside, I have never seen anything like this. Binghamton is fairly a pleasant town and have problems like any other. Many of us are deeply affected as confused by this tragedy. Our thoughts go out to the victims and their families.

    I understand Madonna being denied, because of the residency issues. However, it seems the majority of people are interested in attacking Madonna for her good intentions instead of taking their energy and saving this childs life.

    Love you Anderson and we here in Vancouver think your First Lady is classy no matter what she wears. Her sparkle, obvious intelect, and open approachable expression are as fashuinable as what she wears. We wish she was Canadian.

    I love Richard Quest! You should have him on more often! He is hilarious!...He can teach all how to speak proper English!...Anderson could use a little practice!...I am a follower of Richard Quest on the Twitter!

    Cracking up about Anderson and the kitten heels! I agree with Minou – "Make 'em high or keep 'em flat!"

    It is so sad to hear about what happended in New York, my heart goes out to all the familes..

    I am so proud of President Obama and he is a breath of fresh air and I think set the right tone, he knows what he is doing and first has to set the groundwork and make many amends for the past eight years before he can start getting as "tough" as he would like to be, I think he did prove his "mettle at the G-20, go President Obama..

    I love this whole fashion thing. The fashion world obviously needs to stir up a little excitement. I never pay attention to what Michelle Obama is wearing. Although sometimes it's a little hard to ignore. To me she is much more impressive as a person than a fashion icon.

    Kitten heels? Do all pets have heels?

    April 3, 2009 at 10:55 pm |

    Terrible news about the shootings in Binghamton, to say the least.

    I'm curious to hear how Obama reacts to the missile testing in North Korea, or if there even will be a real reaction.

    Kitten heel – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    A kitten heel is a short, slender heel, usually from 3.5 centimeters (1.5 inches) to 5 centimeters (2 inches) high with a slight curve setting the heel in from the edge of the shoe. The style was popularized by Audrey Hepburn . They are particularly common on sandals.
