    I am grateful for AC360's comprehensive and robust coverage of this catastrophe. Anderson Cooper is to be commended not just for his genuine interest and persistence, but for judiciously choosing some of the best possible expert commentators and interviewees (Doug Brinkley for his considerable intellect and insight, James Carville for his passion, Billy Nungesser for his fearlessness and many others).

    Thank you, Anderson Cooper and CNN for your excellent coverage of this historic catastrophe. Thank you for showing the poor, poor animals and mamamls – so BP can not hide from the reality of ALL the LIFE they are destroying. What can we, Americans who do not live there, do to help?

    Happy Birthday, Anderson Cooper.

    I am heartsick looking at these poor birds suffocating in oil. The death and devastation to wildlife is horrible.

    One of my friends keeps griping about media coverage of the spill. I keep telling him to watch you. Outside of local news, you've been the most exhaustive. Then again, there's a personal connect to this state. Thank you. This makes me sad and angry and sick to think about what the spill is doing. But we'll survive. History proves it over and over again. Good job on a tough story. And Anderson, happy birthday! You deserve the Rib Room for this one!

    It requires a lot of nerve for BP to recruit volunteers to work for free instead of paying them....they have made the mess and now they want volunteers to help clean it up. Now there are volunteers being recruited to help clean up other areas in the Gulf. Isn't that BP's responsibility also? They should employ the unemployed.
