Live Blog from the Anchor Desk 12/10/09

Tonight, we take you inside a massive drug tunnel along the U.S.-Mexico border, used to shuttle drugs and illegal immigrants. Plus, war and peace. Pres. Obama accepts the Nobel Peace Prize just days after boosting the U.S. war power in Afghanistan. We've got the raw politics.

    This swine flu business is dragging on too long. I don't think government regualtion of forced vaccination would help out the environment at all, but perosnal efforts to not transmit the disease is essential.

    Obama has been as gracious as can be about the Nobel Peace Prize. He is constantly under scrutiny because of it and we need to remember he didn't submit his own name. He accepted and made a wonderful speech. Did he deserve it? Probably not, but he was nominated and elected and we must accept this.

    Shame on all of the "Hollywood Stars" that are supporting Polanski!
    There is nothing 'bright' about that!

    I hope that Jeff Toobin is correct and Polanski is back soon!

    I worked in deming, nm this summer and learned the following: Mexicans who work with the drug cartels drive hundreds of pounds of marijuana into the U.S. and drop them in famer's fields. Then those illegal immigrants call border patrol on themselves and wait in the streets until BP comes, picks them up, and drives them back to Mexico. Then, the contact in the U.S. comes and picks up the drugs to go distribute.

    Texas is not dangerous. In fact, as Anderson pointed out, El Paso, which is right next to Juarez, is considered the 33rd safest city in the U.S.
