    I don't really care about women leaving men for women, the world is up side down. But more serious and related to the mortgage problen in this country. My house was set to be auctioned off on the local courthouse steps today 4/24, at the beginning of the week I recieved a contract to purchase for more than the amount owed, this was immediatly sent to my mortgage co I was advised by them that the house was off the auction block because I had previously told them about the pending offer.
    Today 4/24 I have just contacted {mortgage co.} and {law firm} in Va. Beach who are in charge of this to confirm that the auctioning of my house has been cancelled.
    It appears that neither of these two companies know what is happening with my home.
    How many other innocent people are going through this very same problem, and the only response or explination given is "We are checking into it"
    If my house is auctioned off today I promise I will sue everyone involved.

    I don't know what all the fuss is about. I was waterboarded as part of my training in the U.S.service. We have been doing this since the Vietnam War. John McCain was at my graduation.

    Don: Excellent reporting. Great Anchor job.

    I live in southern California 60 miles from the Mexican border and this flu has already invaded the county I live. I do NOT understand why we do not CLOSE OUR BORDERS? THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS! We are going to have a flood of people from Mexico running across the border, fearing for their lives and bring across more cases of flu causing a possible pandemic. I work for the local government in health care and we are NOT prepared for this. It could become very ugly with many deaths.

    The GOP deemed funding for pandemic preparation was extravagant in the stimulus package, therefore it was axed and playing a critical role was Senator Susan Collins.

    Because the funding for pandemic was axed, many nurses that work for health care agency were just laid off. I live 60 miles from Mexico and work for Health Care Agency of the local government. I CAN TELL YOU RIGHT NOW, WE ARE NOT… PREPARED for this!

    The CDC says “facemask without respirators are NOT designed to protect you against breathing in very small particles. A respirator (for example, an N95 or higher filtering facepiece respirator) is designed to protect you from breathing in very small particles, which might contain viruses. These types of respirators fit tightly to the face so that most air is inhaled through the filter material.”

    Therefore the ONLY facemask that works against a virus is the one with a N95 filtering respirator.

    Don Lemon's comment on the meaning of 'OMG' is wrong!
    It is not Oh My God it is Oh MY Gosh – please correct.

    CCTV (central China TV) 5-4-09 interviewed Dr. Hans Troedsson from the W.H.O and Dr. Xing Jun, Director of International Ministry of Health, China. The WHO is at level 5 not 6. USA has enough Tamiflu for 70% of Americans. Their concern is for the return of the virus around September, 2009 in which a variant of the virus changes and can be resistant to Tamiflu. China is working on a vaccine.
