    Thanks Anderson for Keeping it Honest!

    The world is watching the events unfold for a movement that is revolutionary not only amongst the young but old who have learned the lessons with hard times and gripe with sorrow, pain, fear and frustration. The tears shed are not in vain and the young are energized, enthusiastic, educated and empowered citizens following the footsteps and fulfilling their dreams of "life, liberty and pursuit of happiness".

    I wish for more peace & less anger. more actions & less frustrations, more transparency & less bureaucracy. more trees & less fees, more goodness & less sickness, more authenticity and less consumption of electricity.

    Thank You

    Thanks Anderson for covering Libya and Bahrain when most reporters are still talking about celebrities and non sense. My respect to you grows everyday. Thanks eventhough you did not cover Tunisia-which is stil in turmoil and the intrim government still committing crimes against humanity.

    Dear Anderson,

    We need you here in Madison, at least via satellite, to interview
    Governor Scott Walker. The media coverage has been incredibly
    biased, and our local journalists cannot (or are not) asking him
    any of the critical questions that need to be asked. For example, I have
    yet to hear anyone ask about the human rights violations proposed
    in this bill. The International Labour Organization (agency of the
    United Nations) clearly indicates in their Declaration on Fundamental
    Principles and Rights to Work that collective bargaining is a human right.
    There has also been no mention of the fact that the proposed cuts hit
    those making the least amount of money the hardest. As you know, there is a proposed 5.8% of gross income reduction in pay due to contributions to the pension fund. Clearly this is in proportion with a workers' salary. However, it is also proposed that workers pay approximately 12% of their health care premium. That premium is fixed for most state workers, and so those making the least amount of money are impacted the most.

    We need your help ! Thanks...and thanks for everything you do.
