Editor's Note: Tuesday night’s AC360° brought response from viewers who commented on Libyan leader Moammar Ghadafi's visit to the US, and taking temporary residence on land owned by Donald Trump. We also heard from viewers regarding the floods in the southeast. Here’s some of what we heard, and we’d love to hear from you too:

I'm not outraged about Gaddafi's visit and don't think it implies that he is welcome in NY or in America. I am surprised that Trump would open himself up to this kind of public relations controversy though. I don't think much of him, but he seems to think a lot about himself and his "image" and he has ambitions for now and the future. I don't think he'd want to compromise his opportunities by doing something that he, his employees and representatives knew would invite such criticism and public censure.

Regarding the reports on the floods in the southeast, I think it is highly irresponsible to have reporters standing in water, making reports. It conveys the idea that standing in water is safe. Among other things, there could be downed electric lines, and flood waters could reach energized circuitry in houses. If you want to dramatize the water, get a small inflatable rubber boat

    Considering how Donald Trump has done so much for our country and our soldiers, I'm really surprised he put business interests before national security and his country. Didn't he complain about how he could do a much better and faster job rebuilding the world trade center. Make it stronger etc.

    I guess I just don't want to accept someone who seems to be such a patriot would allow a terrorist to come and stay at one of his properies. Yes its a free country. But we are all allowed to reserve the right to refuse service to anyone, even terrorists. He could have said no but he didn't. It seems to me that a press conference about beauty pageants is meaningless compared to this.

    Yesterday the show was very interesting and dynamic with various subjects. It's good when it is so!
    The discussion in the live blog about Gaddafi was very good.
    Another positive point is that Beat's result was released on the air. Both The Beat and The Shot are ways to end the evening nicely!

    Anderson,
    You sounded doubtful that MJ was singing live in "The Shot" sement a couple of days ago but he was. Thank you!
