Editor's Note: Feedback from last night's AC360° focused primarily on the anniversary coverage of Hurricane Katrina. While most appreciated the anniversary coverage, some suggested that recovery efforts in other places besides New Orleans be included in the coverage. Take a look at what we heard, and tell us what YOU think:


It's wonderful that you continue to cover New Orleans' progress after Hurricane Katrina, but I have to ask that you share a little of that attention with the other communities affected by the devastating storms in recent years. The anniversary of Hurricane Ike is in three weeks, and it would be nice to see at least a small mention of Galveston and Bolivar's courageous recovery… I think there is an important lesson and a very compelling story to tell, and I think AC360 is more than capable doing it justice.

Those of us in Mississippi are sick to death about hearing how bad Katrina was in New Orleans. You want to talk about neglected, talk to those of us in Mississippi. While you are at it you might ask about how the insurance companies’ sleazed their way out of paying so many Katrina claims. That's an interesting story the insurance industry would probably rather you not discuss.

    This country was founded and base on our God who we as imigrants and christian beleived in helping each other start our new country without Rulers[ Kings and Queens] controlling what we are aloud to say and do. So we all know this is true. So why aren't the rich not stepping up to help take care of the poor. All I hear are people crying about I shouldn't have to pay for the poor, its not my fought.Well dummies its not anyone persons fought that our country is in the shape its in. {Duh!] But if you are a millionaire or a billionaire and a christian,[Or do you go to your church just to impress people, Or lie about who you are,]You should know that God said in Matt: 19 20-29 Jesus said, "If thou will be perfect, go and see what thou hast and give it to the poor.And thou shalt have treasures in Heaven." He also said in verse 24, "It is easier for a camel to go thru the eye of needle than it is for a rich man to get into Heaven." So what I want to know is why aren't our rich people stepping up to the plate and helping our goverment. If everyone who can give would, then we wouldn't be leaving this deficit to our children and grand children. It shouldn't matter what PARTY you blame or are in, it is your duty as a christian to help this country some how some way. One other note, every living person should be able to get health care. God please help our President and our leaders find their way to a better life in our America, as it should be, for you help choose this America for the richest country in the world. And we are sorry for letting greed and the Devil take it over.

    My criticism today is negative. The sequence about the Michael Jackson's death was long and tiring. I understand the relevance of news stories about the death of the star, but until the panel discussed it. It took several minutes elapsed on the subject.

    Why not anything been said about the elections in Afghanistan?
