Tonight on 360°, a look a small town in Montana that would welcome detainees from Gitmo. Yes, they want them. Right now it's a prison with no prisoners. City officials want to fill it with accused terrorists. We'll take you there.

Don't miss Erica Hill's webcast on the prison and tonight's other headlines during the commercials. Watch our WEBCAST

    Speed Reader:

    Everyone who comes from India can easily qualify to be a speed reader.

    These guys speak so fast – even faster than a regular US Speed reader.

    @Isabel, just saw your comment thanks.

    That was a far reaching discussion with Larry King, Anderson.

    Bad football players and drunk pilots, and at least one person out there looking out for everyone's safety. That's good.

    Good night Isabel. Good night Anderson, Erica, everyone.

    Oh my god, It is so funny. 😀

    I do not think I could do that even in my own language. I do not think I could catch my breath that fast. Sometime you do speak that fast, Anderson.

    Good night Anderson, Erica, AC360 Team, and all bloggers.
    Have a great one.
    Sweet dream all.

    I think that speed reader was a waste of taxpayer dollars. I hope he was a volunteer.

    Thank you Anderson, entire 360 team & David G. Mark Danner. Tonight's show excellent!

    Good night fellow bloggers, very chatty night.

    Speed reader – are our tax dollars paying for this?

    Congratulations on the Global Conservation Hero Award!! You and your team really deserve it!!

    I pray Daniel's mother will seek cancer treatment for her son. Every day that passes, without treatment, lessens his chance of survival.

    Great show tonight, Anderson. I love the speed reader and Herb the auctioneer.

    Good night all.

    Sometimes I feel like Anderson is a speed reader, but compared to these guys - I guess not.

    Tricky Dick Cheney should just stop trying to make the American people believe the lies he has been shoving down our throats for 8 years. He is just evil, in my opinion. This is a person that got 5 deferments during the Viet Nam war – so what gives him any right to make decisiions on war. He should take his parrot of a daughter & fade quietly into the background. His wife also.

    The Larry King interview was a breath of fresh air after hearing from Dick and Liz Cheney.

    Cheney's "rising" poll numbers only prove how easily some ignorant Americans can be fooled AGAIN. The Republicans have nothing to offer but fearmongering.

    Anderson I think t was Mary Gordon who wrote 'To a fatherless child, all things are possible and nothing is safe.'

    Sorry for the kid. I wonder if the kid turns up after an year and is clean of cancer (using some other form of medicine), would the cops drop charges on his mom?

    Now THAT'S a great idea! There shold be a speed-reader hired for each of the representative's offices in Washington! Then, no excuses for not reading the bills, etc.

    What!! A drunk pilot and fuel leak together in one bulletin?? How scary.

    Larry King is great!

    The loss of a father (or mother) is something that we attached to the rest of life. A piece of our soul is torn from us, there's more willingness to live, but it is accurate.

    I hope the mother returns with her son and I hope she doesn't get in any trouble. I pray they can work it out somehow
    Goodnight all!

    The Waterboarding stopped attacks. Is anyone giving credit for that?

    Will somebody please inform Mr. Cheney that he is no longer the Vice President of the United States and that his opinions are no longer relevant in the area of national security. He speaks as if he's still in authority and he's not. Advice is better appreciated when its solicited. He and the previous administration ignored the constitution, the bill of rights and the rule of law. Does he really think the nation is listening to him? Mr. Cheney, life goes on. Get over it. Barak Obama is President!

    Oh my goodness Anderson, what an excellent interview with the great Larry King! You really should do more interviews on the show! You are so at ease and relaxed!! Larry King should interview you now Anderson! 🙂

  35. anthonia-califonia

    I would buy Larry King's book! it sounds so good 🙂
    i like his new hair color "aurburn in today" lol

    It is so interesting to me that Larry King sounds like an Atheist, I have always wondered about he view on this because he has met and interviewed so many influential people that have shared their faith such as Joel and Victoria Osteen..

    May 21, 2009 at 10:52 pm |
  37. Diane Dagenais Turbide


    raised in foster homes, it is interesting to hear you and Larry and how similar the loss of a father has the same impacts in life when the father was alive but not part of your life.

  38. Nattada, Houston TX

    Planet in Peril, congratulation on the award.

    Do not be shy and get blushed, Anderson. You deserve it as well as everyone in the PIP team. (But I like it when you do. Thanks, Erica. )

    Good job!!
