Justin Wagoner has set up a tent outside an Apple store in Dallas, Texas.
He's been there since Sunday.

    2) Enough of Charlie Sheen? How to erase him from the web
    Sheen needs some serious counseling. I'm tired of watching
    him make a fool out of himself. Both my wife and I decided we
    will never watch 2 & 1/2 men again and that's to bad as we
    think it's really Alan & his son that makes the show. Maybe
    CBS should consider changing the name of the show to
    1 & 1/2 men. I'd watch them. Also include the regular cast
    to include his ex-wife, Rose and his mother along with other
    guest stars. Personally I like to see him (Sheen) blackballed
    from the big screen and TV networks. We don't need our
    children to be exposed to such an idiot. Perhaps he should
    really get on his knees and ask God to take control of his life
    as he sure can't control himself.

    Ali I love your show.

    Below is a point that I think you should make in your shows on Nuclear Power!

    The consequences of muck ups in generating nuclear power are too great for this endeavor to ever be done privately. IT MUST ONLY BE DONE BY A PUBLICLY OWNED CORPORATION AS IT IS THE PUBLIC THAT THIS ACTIVITY PUTS AT RISK!!!!!!!! LOOK AT JAPAN!!!!!

    If we have to generate our power this way, it must ONLY be done by a public corportation. Why should we allow private enterprise to play around, make a profit profit and risk the whole country this way??????????

    i'm wondering if you could comment on where nucular waste is stored and how much there is out there both in north america and japan, thanks

    Nuclear power, of course and lets get on with it. Zero carbon emissions, France has figured out drastic reductions in spent fuel. No one is factoring in the wide spread negative impacts of fossils fuels: how many miners die every year, mountain tops removed, huge fly ash deposits and avalanches, have you seen what oil shale mining is doing to Canada? There is no silver bullet but certainly we are smart enough to figure and work our way out of sending billions of our dollars overseas every year.

    At first time when generators failed, instead to bring new generators on site, they were trying run pumps on batteries. I use to running large construction sites; therefore I am familiar with power of generators. They are coming in many capacities. If they don’t have in Japan any, USA would be able to deliver them with short time from army base close by.
    I would like have explanation for it; if is any. That thing could be dropped with helicopter without any problems.
    Anybody can explain?

    Why has tidal energy not become a mainstay on our coastlines. It would be a clean, non polluting form of power that is unending, yet seems to be relatively untapped on a large scale. I understand that there are areas that it would not be possible, but most of the large cities and populations of the world exist on coastlines. Surely the powers that be must have this as a future energy source and can construct tidal based turbines in areas that would have little effect from the devastation that has inundated Japan
