Tonight on 360°, new insight on the man accused of killing a guard at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. Is 88-year-old James von Brunn a so-called "lone wolf", one who is filled with so much hate that he decided to take action on his own? We'll have the latest on the murder case.

    The 'undocumented' college students are citizens of Mexico. They should apply for scholarships from the Mexican government to study abroad – in the US.
    Americans do this all the time.

    Mr. Cooper, I am an African American female 56 yrs old. Listening to your story about the young lady who is an illegal alien, wishing to attend college at the tax papers expense made me furious. I can't believe that the US would even consider allowing illegals to get federal tax paper money for college, regardless how smart they are suppose to be. We have thousands of young people who were born here of all races and can't get any help from our gov't for college, let alone an expensive one. We are in debt up to our eyeballs, legal citizens are losing their homes, jobs and lives and you have the nerve to entertain helping an illegal with college funds just because they are smart. Please, we do have smart kids right here in the US that desparetly need help with school. Dang, what is America coming to when it rather help others before it helps it's own. I might just go Republican where they seem to have more sense.

    David Letterman is not even funny. His boring rant puts me to sleep every night. If I ever listen to it .

    Perry Como! For more than two decxase (maybe three) Perry Como had the highest TV audience rating for a TV special. (It was from a show int he early 60s–before I was born, ahem.) I wonder where that record stands now! Go David Gergen!

    My first concert was Aerosmith, 1998 – Knickerbocker Arena. I was a poor college student, but managed to gather $110 to buy boat loads of t-shirts (3) and I wore them each until they were rags. Haven't been to another concert since – You rock Steven Tyler!

    The story made it seem like we should be so sorry for all these kids because they are undocumented. So should we not only take care of Nancy but all the other kids in that room. We don't even take care or try to help out poor kids born here in America, take care of our own first. They should see if their own country will help them out. I know Nancy thinks of America as her home, and she has been here all or most of her life but if she is illegal, I am sorry she has to try to get her money for education elsewhere

    I think that can be The Velvet Underground, Monkees or Ike & Tina Turner. My husband already thinks of The Who.

    Perry Como or Bo Diddley?
    Yeah, they are real similar.

    Thank you for spotlighting Stephen Johns for his professionalism and kindness. Heroes like Mr. Johns, his security team and all of their families deserve more supportive recognition and more balanced reporting about their life-long contributions. In comparison, criminals receive too much air-time.

    It is news to me that bright students like Nancy are not provided oppurtunities to expand their education. I hope she gets the money she needs for college!

    I am sorry this story is crazy... American kids want to get into college, lets send an american to Mexico and try to stay ( without proper approval), then have the Mexican tax payers pay for thier kids elementary and high school education , then request loans from the state to go to college ( right good luck)

    You have two anti-semitic stories tonight: the horrible tragedy at the Holocaust Museum and the vile comments from Reverend Wright. Why are you guys separating the stories when they have the same anti-semetic thread?

    Doesnt Letterman have a kid?
    I wonder if he thinks its funny if someone made a sex joke about his kid.
    Didnt Letterman have a stalker?
    Did the stalker want sex?
    Its scary when the media allows this stuff to be said when so many sick people are in the world.
    I hope Letterman and his kid are not fair game !

    Anderson, this Texas highway robbery is not the only one, I personally was pulled over in Farmington Hills, MI for speeding which I actually wasn't; and the police officer demanded for me to pay $100, else he will have to retained my drivers' license. Knowing I was on my way to the airport and needed my license, I had no choice but to give up $100 cash.

    The Dream Act would only add to the progression of our Nation; to deny Nancy her dream we deny the foundation of USA.

    Renee: you can't just become "legal". you cannot "get in line" and apply for legal status. I've been through all this, and it is nearly impossible to get your green card!
