    That bird in San Francisco is having the time of his/her life messing up peoples hair. Is that a mom bird? The people walking by don't seem to mind either

    Okay "The Shot" is really creeping me out. (A nightmare situation for me.) My older sister let me watch the movie "The Birds" when I was about 5 or 6 and I've been scared of birds (and pretty much anything that flies) ever since.

    Hi Anderson and Erica,
    I really love the 80's do, Anderson!!!

    Erica, you always have such witty comments on the show, I just love hearing your latest!!!

    What an awful day in DC, how horrible about this latest shooting. I can understand having issues, but to take up a gun, and shoot innocent is insane.

    I just love AC360, it's a great show. I esp love that you get to have David Gergen on to discuss politics, etc.

    I feel really bad for the family of the guard killed at the Holocaust museum. My prayers go out to the fallen officer and his family.

    Eric - thanks for bringing out the "Flock of Seagulls" hair pic of Anderson - somehow I knew it was going to make an appearance this week!!

    @ miss j. unfortunately i agree, but i'd like to at least attempt maintaining my optimistic outlook on life even with all the stuff going on these days...

    Miss CA got too many chances from D. Trump!!

    Hopefully, CA will now be represented by a woman who is really interested in fullfilling the role.

    So good that the search for the wreckage of Air France Airbus will be strengthened with five French vessels, including a submarine equipped with advanced sonar equipment. Every help is welcome!

    Seems like the imposter soldier was trying to find a way to participate in events, but had mental illness identity problems. How young was Rick Stranekof (sp?) when he was in a homeless shelter?

    today has been a tragic day and unfortunately, too many days have been like this, what with the war & gang violence. what's happening to our world?

    That is crazy that a detective who worked on a murder was actually the murderer. It does sound like a Law & Order episode

    I am watching the show and can't believe someone would lie about being a veteran. Please where are people minds, I am so sick of when people do wrong and know they have done wrong . then they want to say I am sick , I had a bad child hood that is why I did what I did.People need to start respecting each other. I think this guy should be charge with crimal charges he lied and knew it.

    @ David, Indiana

    the history is full of unjust persecution, unfortunately.

    Another injustice today … the innocent is dead while working. This is very sad!
