Editor's Note: Monday night’s AC360° viewers continued to respond to the Heene family and their alleged balloon hoax. Many of you feel that enough time has been spent on the story. In the interest of the child, some viewers are requesting that the video of Falcon Heene vomiting on live television not be shown again. Some of you also voiced opinions and shared experiences following the women in the workplace panel. Is your comment there? If not, we’d like to invite you to share your thoughts here:

Please, no more Balloon Boy stories. It appears the father may be a fraud, but have mercy on his family especially his children.

I enjoy the coverage that Anderson provides every night, however I feel that the coverage of the Balloon boy is way too much.

Please stop showing the clip of Falcon, aka, Balloon Boy, vomiting on television. This child should not be punished for actions taken by his parents. This incident will stay with him forever and media footage will certainly follow him for the rest of his life.

I really enjoyed the discussion about women and the workplace. I hope you will do more of these sort of discussions and pieces about matters and issues that are part of people's lives but not all over the headlines and on every news show non-stop. It was great to see a discussion with intelligent contributions from people just trying to get to the bottom of things.

My wife is a high performing woman (first to get to this level, first to get to that level...) who hit the glass ceiling about 10 years ago. Your guests were spot on!

I don't agree with Faye that the main reason that a higher number of black women have been in the work force than black men is because of incarceration. I think that due to discrimination, there weren't as many job positions open to black men.
