    Michael Jackson looked thin, but didn't look like someone who would day next day.

    Nite everyone

    I am a huge Michael Jackson fan, but he looks like a pasty faced goblin. There is nothing healthy about that face or emaciated frame.

    Thank you Anderson, Erica & Team 360, especially for the reports on Afganistan & Atlanta. A good night to you all too.

    Good night fellow bloggers, always great to dialogue with you.

    The shot: MJ looks very thin but energized!

    Oh, and I was referring to the man standing in ATL's high floodwaters who tossed the water bottle to demonstrate the speed of the water.

    We had such a beautiful weekend here on the east cost, I had no idea the weather was that bad in the south. Hope everyone has a safe night.

    Could your reporter have set an eco-aware example by choosing something other than a non-biodegradable plastic water bottle to demonstrate the current? Many small actions become 1 large action.

    MJ would have been in pretty good shape and getting even better – working out, toning muscle, some of those practice routines are fairly complex and demanding... would have all been worth it if he'd had a chance to finish what he started.

    Unbelievable flooding in the Atlanta area. My thoughts and prayers to the residents of the area. Stay safe!

    anyone else see this flooding (and wildfires in Cali, droughts, etc. all over the world) as the result of CLIMATE CHANGE.
    i'm just sayin'....

    @David, Indiana

    I'm pretty sure, or the ones that ever got to school in the first place. At one of the schools I know, the kids' parents kept them home even though they were supposed to send them. And a lot of the buses picked up the kids, but had to turn around and take them back because they couldn't even get to the schools through all the water.

    You guys just had some one Litter on TV?!?!?!

    Couldn't he have tossed a stick or something, rather than an empty H2O bottle?

    I hope all make it through the floods okay. Do not drive through flood water, even if it's only 2-3 inches. Your tires float, so your car will be swept away. Please be careful. Best of luck!

    @Anderson – thanks for the continuing coverage of the war in Afghanistan. i'm glad to see that people are still paying attention to the fact that there's a war on.

    i can't believe how bad the flooding has gotten in the south! wow! hope no one else gets hurt or killed by this terrifying act of nature...

    That 'black box' of Garrido's is an old typewriter box from the 1950's era. I have no idea about the wiring, but it is simply that, as I collect old typewriters.
