Hope you're having a nice Monday night. Here's what's on our radar: Could Pres. Obama have to back away from his promise of no new taxes for the middle class? Plus, a custody decision regarding Michael Jackson's children, but questions remain over his estate.

    The second 100 days ad is so negative! Why is that ? That just shows me the tone of this "report" card in advance.

    Hi Gary Tuchman, Survro...

    Chilling to see that rept on Charle Manson. Just scary.

    Good beat 360, dems and repubs in the muck together.

    It 's funny how that bldg tumbled but thank God no one got hurt. Not great explosive placement by the demolition team.

    Good night Isabel good night everyone

    That's a good question, Erica. How did that building take a tumble and remain intact?

    Have a nice Tuesday everyone!

    Thank you Erica, Gary Tuchman & team 360 for another diverse show & good night too.

    Good night fellow bloggers, wishing you a great day tomorrow.

    I can't imagine Gary Tuchman, who speaks with such a soft voice, could "scream" really, really loud.
