    Anderson, glad you had a safe trip–and no, it doesn't show. You look fine.

    Niroshina makes a strong point–some coverage on what's happening in Sri Lanka right now would be a welcome addition.

    Take care, everyone; have a good night.

    Thank you Anderson & total 360 team for another broad topics show tonight. Good night too.

    Good night fellow bloggers.

    Anderson, get some sleep tonight – those red eye fights can be rough (and then a whole show to organize and appear in).

    Call me nutty, but i always loved the Thriller album and dance. I think it's great! 242 people...and of course our favorite prison clip. LOL
    YES – Have the crew version – would pay money for that!

    Beat 360 is so cute tonight, and funny, too.

    Good night everyone.
    Have a great week.
    Get some good sleep tonight, Anderson.
    Sweet dreams all.

    Goodnight folks. Anderson I think you should parody the thriller dance video. Your viewers should definitely enjoy it.

    It's a terrible waste to rob ourselves of the talents of Americans willing and able to serve in the military just because they are gay. DADT makes no sense. But we've come a long way and I continue to hope this issue will become a non-issue in the near future.

    Well, this video was certainly, um, "thrilling"...haw haw haw.
    I'm still more impressed by the prisoners than the college kids, and I never thought I'd put a sentence like that together...wow.
    Goodnight, everyone!!!

    I can't believe the family calling it police burtality. How about he should of followed the commands of the officer and none of this would have happened. He brought it on himself a reasonable person would have listen to a police officer.

    @Esma, using force to resist arrest IS a violent crime. Police can use the force they feel is needed to protect themselves and the public. As long there was physical resistance to following police attempts to arrest him, physical means to subdue him are permitted.

    I think I would've liked college a lot lot better if I got to dance to Thriller and appear on TV for it. That would've been the highlight of my college years.

    It clearly seems that those cops were out to make an example of this teenager.

    Anderson, when I'm watching the news I think of Daniel Pearl sometimes. I feel terrible for him, his family.

    @Patricia Edmonton, I like what you wrote. I pray things turn around for Farrah too.

    I don't know if this is appropriate, but if Farrah Fawcett's cancer is localized, has she tried the highly specific, focused, radiation therapy, called radiosurgery, or cyberknife? Delivers radiation to the needed area without affecting healthy tissues as much as conventional radiation. Radiation focused in specific doses from various angles to do this.
