Airport chaos in the Northeast: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Tonight, airport chaos. Four jumbo jets stranded for hours on the tarmac in New York. Hundreds of passengers with little to eat or drink. Who's to blame? No one is taking responsibility, and there's plenty of finger-pointing. We're Keeping Them Honest. Plus an American aid worker jailed in Haiti. The allegations sound outrageous...turning a baby into a zombie and kidnapping him. The accusations from a grief-stricken father have landed Paul Waggoner in jail despite no criminal charges. We'll have the very latest. And in our Extreme Living series we're looking at what drives elite athletes to new heights. Tonight we focus on a woman who is making a name for herself in the male-dominated world of Nascar.

Scroll down to join the live chat during the program. It's your chance to share your thoughts on tonight's headlines. Keep in mind, you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Keep it short (we don't have time to read a "book")
2) Don't write in ALL CAPS (there's no need to yell)
3) Use your real name (first name only is fine)
4) No links
5) Watch your language (keep it G-rated; PG at worst - and that includes $#&*)

    All SUVs should be destroyed anyway. The tractor driver was simply doing his civic duty for the benefit of all mankind.

    They are also to inform people of any worries, etc. before they travel to certain lands which they don't have "agreements" with. I wonder if they has been done with Paul?

    That poor dog and he looks so forlorn and probably embarrassed. What a picture!!!!

    The president did not call Vick but the eagle's owner. I don't that would matter.

    December 28, 2010 at 10:55 pm |
  14. Julian

    Yah and they can look to Vick as a good role model if he manages to turn his life around. He knows he messed up and now lets give him another chance. If he screws that up then to hell with him!

    December 28, 2010 at 10:54 pm |

    @ Emily
    Yes and it is outrageus that the US chooses to do that.
    They are supposed to ensure that local laws are followed and that the prisoner has consul access.

    Great, we're leaping from NASCAR to a tractor demolition derby in the snow. EXCELLENT! Couldn't ask for more...

    They need to start talking about the female drivers too, not just the male drivers. I've never heard of Jennifer Cobb but I say go girl!

    December 28, 2010 at 10:49 pm |
  19. Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

    That's so amazing woman Jennifer Cobb made success Nascar race driver!!!!!!! Casey, I agree with you, Danica Patrick also great race driver, too!!!!!

    December 28, 2010 at 10:49 pm |
  20. Casey Jones - Palm Springs, CA

    Jennifer is very cool. Now I'll be watching for her. I wonder about the other woman who are in the race car circuit.

    @Emily Life is Life no matter what form
    Yet we don't have this much division when the military takes life and calls it defense for our country. So again, ethically or equally Life is still Life and people must still live and move on

    Nascar racing is grueling. She certainly has talent and tenacity!

    @Dewayne Adams
    "is a dog more valuable than a human?"
    I think that people are looking for humans treat animals "Ethically", not necessarily "Equally". However, I know a couple of people who are blind and their dog is their "eyes".

    December 28, 2010 at 10:46 pm |
  24. Samantha Rowley - Nashville, TN

    Never heard of Jennifer Jo Cobb. Like Casey, I thought they would talk of Danica Patrick.

    December 28, 2010 at 10:46 pm |

    @ PAt
    The flaw in your logis is expecting athletes to be role models. They are paid to be good at their sport. It is society that makes the mistake of expecting them to be role models. Parents are responsible to be role models to their kids. No one else has that obligation.

    December 28, 2010 at 10:46 pm |
  26. Dewayne Adams

    Everyone has opinions on this subject or that matter. When the bottom line of things. We reside in the United States and everyone has the right to a 2nd chance. The role models are human, humans are capable and make mistakes daily. Its called LIFE if we forget to lift people that have fallen back up. Then America ceases to exist on the principals it was founded upon!

    We always want somebody to blame and there are many to blame for the 11 hrs on the ground.

    It really doesn't matter the people where there, and the human factor will always be effected outside routines; which means humans need to take responsibility for circumstances out of the ordinary.

    Are we so dependent on the system that passengers have to wait for 11 hrs in an airplane? That is ridicules.

    @Emily. Yes, I believe Obama will definitely run again and Hilary says she's happy doing what she is doing as Secretary of State. I do think there is mutual respect between Obama and the Clintons which is nice to see after their hard fought differences during campaigning.

    Pilots find out whether or not a gate is available before they arrive, they are supposed to contact the ramp controller who controls the flow of traffic in and out of the alleyways whether or not their gate is available. Once your flight lands, and control tower person hands the pilot over to the ground controller, at this point the pilot is supposed to advise the ground controller on the status of their gate. The airline itself doesn't know the gate status.

    I just hope that the 2012 Presential election isn't as rediculous as the mid-term elec. I'm not looking forward to another round of those crazy ads.
