    Whether you are rich or poor... things mean more then they should and they shouldn't be taken away. $ doesn't replace memories

    the fact that obama is a natural born citizen is just that, a fact, not an opinion, these birthers have the facts but they refuse to accept them, not matter how much proof there is, people like this will new accept that fact that obama is a neutral born citizen, they can try and prove all they want that obama isn't but it wont work because you cant prove what's not true. the birthers(i cant believe there is even a group dedicated to this) just cant accept that obamas president and that why they are resorting to these desperate false arguments.

    Oil spill.
    The large cement box should be put back over the oil pipe but they need to put a smaller pipe inside the large pipe.
    The smaller pipe would have a hard drill point on the end then a wire mess screen beyond the point.
    The smaller pipe would be forced down the box as far you can.then start sucking the oil from the bottom of the box.Leave the icy gas stay at the top of the box.
    It seems that a strong vacuum to pull the oil up faster than the oil coming out of the leak in order to hold the box to the floor of the gulf floor.
    thanks Dave Aikens

    I agree, Gisella...which is what I'm saying–we reward them, we watch them on TV and make them rich by doing so, we make them feel they did the right thing because of all the attention they're getting for it....which is what they clearly crave. These must be very needy kids.

    So can we have more old stars on TV before they all die? Perhaps the gray hairs can be a new trend?

    Thank you and good night Anderson and entire Team 360.

    Good night All...wishing you all a safe and good day tomorrow.

    God bless Lena Horne. God bless and angels help Paco the dog eventually find his owner & Ben from Nashville too.

    LOVE Bette White for many years and she has lost a bit of her timing. And she is a legend, without a doubt.

    I laughed pretty much throughout the entire SNL broadcast with Betty White and that's something I rarely do with that show–she was fantastic.

    BP has completely botched their management of the crisis in the gulf. I hope they do not get away with it all.

    That girl even got a reality show for her actions....6 months in jail for a million dollar contract for a reality show. Nice example for our teens there

    It is sad when a few people abuse the Quran and ruin it for the majority of Muslims. In reality, many Muslims use the Quran and the religion Islam on a day to day basis, but they use it to live a very normal life. Simply put, Islam has no place for terrorists. I wish these terrorists would use some other religion or book and would stop tarnishing our image.

    If someone leaves the key under the mat, they should expect to get robbed, they should make it a little harder like hide it under a brick or a rock.

    @Jo Ann Good question about being able to use Hawaiian Birth Certificate to get a driver's license, though I think birth certificates are not requried to get a driver's license. As I understand it the Hawaii Certificate of Live Birth is accepted by other states, and the Federal government.

    Why is the bling ring doing what they're doing?
