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

We have breaking news on the the death and disorder in Libya. We've got the first western correspondent on the ground, inside Libya. Also, an exclusive with Barbara Walters, who's interviewed Moammar Gadhafi several times and we'll talk with a young woman trapped in Tripoli, who is risking her life to talk to us. She wants the world to know what she's seeing.

    Anderson, I think it's very clear that Walker is engaging in Democrat busting. Union busting is just the first step.
    Walker has a history of budget crisis capitalism.
    He did the same thing recently to oust union guards in Milwaukee.

    WOW, where does the time go?

    Thank you Anderson & Team 360 for Another excellent program tonight.

    Good night fellow writers. Blazing blog tonight!
    I wish everyone a safe and peaceful day tomorrow.
    My prayers to the people of New Zealand. I am stunned that a 6+ earthquake could cause so much damage and death. Although I heard is was very clost the surface.

    Prayers to all in New Zealand... the effects of this earthquake are so very sad.

    Anderson, once again thanks for keeping your focus on the middle east.

    I'm not saying that Wisconsin should necessarily raise taxes or that they have exhausted all possible cuts; however, cuts tend to only come to certain areas of the budget, and I would much rather pay additional taxes than have funding for services cut further than they've already been.

    Sounds like a terrible quake in New Zealand. Thoughts are with those effected.

    libya has the highest human development index and one of the highest standard of living on the cotinent of Africa. Col gadaffi has done well to enable the people to such high standard of living and the protest with all this violence is just unjustified

    Gathafi, his sons, and all who is with them should be excecuted and go to HELL. Let them be an example to who ever is like him. democracy and fredom should be a right not privilege to every humman being.

    you have to admit that the democratic senators leaving the state sure got a lot of people's attention – more people probably know what "collective bargaining" even is now

    I think the Gov. has inflammed a situation that could have been handled more diplomaticly.

    The Unions have already agreed to take cuts.
    The Gov. could have shown some respect to the demonstrators.

    The Republicans missed the message of the election. We Want the two parties to work together, Not play politics again!
