Editor's Note: After Monday's show feedback was still all about the oil disaster. Viewers thanked Anderson Cooper and AC360 for staying in LA and getting the story from the locals there.

i watch every day and see the awful things i have not seen a bit of change it is the same ole' story i would like to the men or women in charge of this horrible catastrophe get down there and watch them see the real side of this and pick up a shovel and make an initiative to clean up this crap.... why do the people who live there have to make the first effort????? But see that’s what makes us human

I just wanted to send a short email, thanking CNN and especially Anderson Cooper, for all their hard work reporting the oil spill. As a Florida rose with the sun on my back and the sand between my toes, the ocean is our "world" down here. Although the East coast has not been affected by the oil yet, we feel the sense of urgency here already. Thank you Anderson for all your dedication and love you have given to this crisis. So much of our country's livelihood and awareness is based off the media, and I commend you for persistence and hard work reporting the facts.

Guess the whole Gulf oil spill situation is under control...I do remember the president & BP's chief executive saying that they "will not rest" until this situation is righted. Hayward spent the weekend at a yacht race & Obama played golf & went to a White Sox game. The whole Gulf Coast would like to say thank you to the 2 men "in charge", glad you enjoyed your weekend.

    I think the San Francisco council's decision to not allow McDonald's to sell their poor nutrition happy meals with toys is a good decision. Many parents today do not have the knowledge and fortitude to make good decisions regarding what their children eat. Our nation's children are becoming more and more obese which will soon be a national crisis if something isn't done. For many children, a good number of their meals are purchased at fast food places which have unfortunately not stepped up to the plate in cutting out the lures and bad food so they need to have externally imposed guidelines to follow. If the parents want to cook fattening non-nutritious food at home they can do it. I believe Anderson showed his bias in how he presented this story and choosing Dr. Phil to endorse his position was wrong. Dr. Phil was off base on that. Why didn't we hear equal comments from a dietician with expertise in children's nutrition to present the other side of this issue? (Just a little observation: the two men who endorsed Dr. Phil's position had double chins which makes me wonder how much they know about good nutrition.)
