What’s on Tap – Tuesday September 15th 2009

Here are the big stories on the agenda today:

  • A campus in shock.  A case unsolved.  Yale University holds a candlelight vigil for murdered grad student Annie Le.  Hear what her roommate had to say and the latest on the police investigation.  Why some on the campus are saying, "there could be a murderer among us."
  • A tragic loss in Hollywood.  Stars, fans and family all celebrating the life and mourning the death of Patrick Swayze this morning.  The 57-year-old actor battled pancreatic cancer for nearly two years.  He became a silver screen idol in the 80's and 90's for his roles in "Ghost" and "Dirty Dancing." We’ll have a look back at his career.
  • One year after the Lehman Brothers collapse kick-started a financial crisis, we're talking to the man who was known as "the sheriff of Wall Street,” before he became infamously known as “client 9,” Eliot Spitzer.  What should we really be doing to fix the economy and bring back all the jobs lost in the past year?  The former governor will join us live.
  • Celebs, pro athletes and politicians all behaving badly.  From on court tirades, to on stage outbursts, to heckling the president in the chambers of Congress, where are our manners?  We’ll ask an expert on etiquette.

    Your coverage of the racism and the false labelling of the President was very tame considering the panel discussion on Anderson Cooper last night. One of the leaders of the tea party movement was on and tried to contend there was little hatred and racism fueling part of these demonstrators. He also called them the fringe.

    However, when Anderson confronted him with the words on his blog it presented a completely different picture of this man's attitudes. here he called the president an "Indonesian Muslim" and a "welfare thug". There is a totally different picture of what these people want to admit to in front of the camera from what they are saying directly to each other.

    Why is CNN not reporting on this ugliness??

    Afganistan is afghanistans problem. 18 of the 19 hijackers were from saudi arabia. Afghanistan needs to draft and train the soldiers it needs to defend its own country The U.S. drafted and trained soldiers for WW I, II, Korea and Vietnam. Osama is right about Obama he is just like bush. The us has a 60 trillion dollar debt. We need to spend money here to protect our own citizens from kidnappers, rapists, serial killers, and anarchists.
