Editor's Note: After last night's AC360°, many of you wrote in about the flooding in Tennessee. Most were glad that it was getting the coverage it deserved. There were mixed reviews on the Bill Maher interview. Do you have anything to say? Let us know?

Thank you Anderson and CNN for reporting on the floods in Nashville and for apologizing on air for not giving it the coverage it deserves. I play Frankie Valli in JERSEY BOYS in Vegas but live in Nashville part time as well and was there this weekend during the devastation. My hat is off to you for covering the story. You rock Anderson!

Thank you for finally giving some time to the flooding in the Tennessee area. As a high school teacher, I had many students return to school today who did not sleep in their homes last night, nor did they sleep there over the weekend. Tennesseans are quite independent and I believe that we have displayed that spirit. There has been very little looting or violence as has been seen during other disasters. Instead, I believe that we have been a model for cooperation and true neighborliness. Please report on that aspect and maybe other places can see that such a world still exists.

Thank you SO very much, Anderson! I sent you an email a few days ago pleading with you to give the Nashville flood some media attention. I am watching your show and I commend you for realizing that this is a BIG story and for understanding why the people of middle Tennessee feel slighted. I look forward to watching your show from Music City tomorrow, and I appreciate the awareness you will be raising for this devastated area. The kind folks in this area are going to need lots of help, and I appreciate your part in making this a reality. Peace ; )

Big thank you to Anderson Cooper for finally bringing the national media attention to the flooding in Nashville – this really became a disaster on Sunday and was not receiving any national attention. As always, we can count on Anderson Cooper to bring the appropriate focus. Keep up the excellent work.

I love Bill Maher, but what makes him the authority on Islam? How can he answer questions like, "Is Islam a religion of peace?"

Terrific interview with Bill Maher. Why are we treating Islam separately? Bill correctly answered. It is unfortunate that the US media is succumbing to Islamic pressure groups.
