Japanese authorities are considering whether to raise the nuclear threat level to a 7. Chernobyl was rated as a 7, the highest level. There will be a news conference at 10 p.m. ET. We'll bring you any breaking developments. Plus, here at home, House lawmakers working into the night on the compromise budget deal.

    Somehow I thought Donald Trump would get into any discussion about hair.

    But thanks for some light humor to balance all the bad news.

    Good night everyone. Great to be with all of you again to start this week. Promises to be a wild ride with all the conflicts in Congress. We better sleep well and rest up.

    It sounds like Japan is fast approaching a point of no return.

    As you are the "go to reporter" for a new stories that touch our lives, please look into today's CNN package form the Japanese reporters who ventured into cordoned off nuclear zone. Included in the story were the two reporters coming across a chained starving dog . Everyone evacuated so quickly, this dog like many others was left behind. The Japanese reporters fed the poor dog their lunch but that's where the story ends.

    Please use your voice and power to look further into the story of this dog. There is a potential to give hope through the ashes if the message is sent out for someone to save and take care of the dog.

    Thanks so much.

    Great reporting, everyone. I hope Eman and the Japanese residents get to return home safely soon. And- "Does one hand not know what the other is doing, or does one hand not care what the other is doing?" Wow, you know there's trouble when either of those is true.

    And, ooh, RedicuList! Yay, I thought that had been moved to sometime after 11pm, after I switch to Comedy Central. Goodnight, all!

    Very true, Starr. There has been fright and insult added to injury.

    So someone gave their own lunch to a tied-up dog that is starving in Japan.........WHAT happened to the dog, Anderson? Why leave us hanging about stuff like this? Did they just leave him there?

    @Chi...Gadhafi is really crazy and has access to weapons, not to mention he has bought favor with other countries in Africa with the money he skimmed from the people of Libya.

    Money+crazy+weapons=big trouble

    I don't see any advantage to Gadhafi's regime in having Eman al-Obeidy remain in Tripoli–it is only endangering her. I hope she is able to leave soon.

    I really do not understand. What is the difference between a 5 and a 7 threat level?

    i think that a lot of individuals (family members and senior advisors) were given the impression that "they" were "the most important" – now each of them thinks that THEY have more control than the others – should be interesting to see how this plays out internally

    The only thing the Gadhaffi regime can accomplish is confusion. I wonder if this public display of stupidity is on purpose, really?

    President Obama does not look like a good candidate for "the comb-over". Not good....
