Tonight on 360°, signs that recession could be over by the end of the year. That's what a group of leading economists believe. But there is a sobering report out of Detroit on the fate of GM. CNN's Ali Velshi will have the details. Got a question on the economy and your money? Text 360° at 94553. Please be sure to include the letters AC and your name and location in the text.

    Drew Peterson is a sick person I completely agree. In regards to gay marriage I honestly believe gay marriages would last longer than heterosexual marriages. Trust me we manage to screw up our marriages all on our own. I am totally for commitment trust love and honesty.

    A lot of people determined to get that cheese.

    Wow Kim Jong Il wrote 15 books in college and golfed 38 under par the first time he golfed. A dicator and a renaissance man.

    Glad to hear from Ali Velshi the recession maybe ending looking for the upsurge in the economy for everyone

    Good night Isabel, John King, Erica, everyone.

    Idol, isn't rigge per se, or at least by the show, but with those nonstop multiple dialing programs and entire states or PR for one contestant, it isn't neccessariy based on who is the best liked singer, but who has the combination of best singing, personality and people with either a vested interest or fanatisism to vote vote vote. It should be one vote per phone or text line and then it would be a fairer vote.

    North Korea is an enourmous threat for the security of the world. We the people have to realize that we are being controlled by the powers to be. The truth is that we the US has funded North Korea to develope Nuclear weapons...and now the plan is being executed to push for a Asian Union...it may lead to a WWIII. Very delicate situation

    Now that's just cheesy....but it would be funny to see Anderson chasing everyone off of "his" hill with a broom. I'm just saying...

    It's getting close to that time -

    Good show tonight, John King - hope you're back for the rest of the week (and that Anderson Cooper is enjoying his well deserved vacation.)

    Good chatting with you tonight, Fellow Bloggers - always enjoy this part of the show.

    Until tomorrow night....peace.....

    I sleep better at night knowing that we have an intelligent, articulate, moderate and patient leader in the White House and the State Department. With the latest moves by North Korea, having a nut case in the White House would doom us all.

    @Suzi, what can I say, I agree. If your gay neighbours are married and live together, but you don't even see or meet them, it will only bother you if you try really hard to think about them. And why you'd do that, have no idea.

    OH I know what the shot is! It's a competition that has actually been going on for generations, forgot the country but you get to keep the cheese and get another prize.

    I was one of many who actually knew in my lifetime there would be a black president, then I know in my lifetime there will be equality! NOH8

    Every time Idol is on there is always someone saying the vote was rigged. Nuff.......................

    Just when I thought Drew Peterson couldn't be any creepier and obnoxious, he just has to prove me wrong.

    Barack needs to really take North Korea seriously..stop running to the U.N. North Korea obviously doesn't care we need to press that button and give them what they deserve!
