      Nigerians in the remote part of the country have lived with out have the benefit of having water from a good source. So, the world water day did help bring to light the plight of the people that live without good clean water.

    Just watched video footage of George Zimmerman in the garage of the police station. Yes he is handcuffed, however clearly no injury to the back of his head as well as no blood on the front of his face or clothes. How did this happen?

      The police keep looking at his head for no reason? Must have been something there!

      Another example of the left against women. The Dems should take note on how to treat women. If Sarah had strong women on the left to defend her the way Rosen had from the right then the wouldn't look like such hippocrates. Take note Dems!

    In 1992 or 1993 Julio Aliaga – CNN correspondent based out of Miami (with John Zarella) did the first live interview in Spanish of space shuttle astrounauts (who spoke Spanish but were not Hispanics). Would you please let me know where I could get a copy of the video? Cheers,

    CNN please do your research. Remember Marta Burk? Years ago a protest was set up outside of the Augusta National because Women were upset about the club not having a female member. The national media covered it for weeks. The women threatened to boycott the sponsors. Guess whart happened? The Augusta National decided that they did not need sponsors. The sponsors needed the Augusta Nationals. Oh, and only about 20 women showed up to protest. Losing battle. Those of us who live in Augusta hate traffic. We only tolerate it for that one week. A protest in Augusta would be laughable, as it was five + years ago. I am in an all female AA Sorority and we do not accept men. Right Soledad? Let the men have their club.

    The last crash of jet was in the early 90's. The jet took off and crashed on Lynnhaven Blvd. because the pliot turned too early causing the jet to stall. The jet landed on a car and killed the woman driver. The Navy is a part of the community and that relationship should continue as far as the people of Hampton Roads and Va.Beach are concerned.

    Hello, I've been watching CNN this evening, and I am really upset that the top story is the Zimmerman guy surrender to police. It's an unfortunate story that happens far too often in this country, persons should not be allowed to carry weapons. Policemen kill our citizens all the time, in similar situations, and they are allowed to carry the gun too.

    My point being ... there are people being murdered in Syria right now. There will be more murders in Syria tomarrow. People were murdered in Syria yesterday. Why is the Zimmerman case more important than the slaughter that is going on in the rest of the world.

    Come on CNN, we need responsible journalism to keep people informed of attrocities, and to help keep America safe. This fear mongering and redundancy about a single murder is overdone and there are other issues that need attention. Thank You, J.M.

    Blitzer's treatment of Hilary Rosen today was a perfect example of bullying by a man in a power position and proves that Blitzer is nothing more then a coward – would love to see him pull those antics on one of his right wing tea party boy friends he always gives such deference to – his nose might end up out of joint. If Hilary was my sister/wife/mother, you would need a couple of security gaurds to pull me off that cowardly piece of S%&!. Now where is Mr. Bully Blitzer’s apology to all your viewers for his cowardly antics towards Hilary, who didn't say anything wrong, unless you were such a lousy journalist, Blitzer, and didn’t listen to the entire comment in context. If Hilary has her wits about her, she should sue the pants off Bully Blitzer for his total lack of journalistic integrity. If CNN had their wits about them they would suspend Bully Blitzer and bring in a competent journalist to run that show.

    Why do we need neighborhood crime watch? Why do we live in gated neighborhoods? Why do we need alarms systems? Isn't this the real issues here. Put a kid with a chip on his shoulder and a zealous crime watch person together you got trouble.

    I saw the chinese defense minister speaking and just as he was about to speak on cyber security (a hot issue) cnn changed stories. No accusations, but this could be viewed the same way the chinese black out CNN world when presenting certain stories.

    A disgusting display of Government Controlled Media Bigotry and Hate. An Apology across ALL Major Television Networks is the only 'Remedy'. Demand MORE Responsibility from Our 'Media Peers'.

    The kids that feel it is okay to verbally attack people need to do some community service hours. They might not think it is so cool after they do some time in a nursing home, alzheimers facility,VA hospital or homeless shelter. The spoiling of Americas youth is really getting out of hand.

    In a comment I read that the lawyers and others searched systematically through Trayvon Martins whole schooltime, they tore apart his whole short life to find faults. And then: They shouted what a bad boy, – what a danger for George Zimmerman he was.
    I beg your pardon, – has anybody done the same in GZ’s case?
    Someone explained, that GZ had his bad times, then for quite awhile he was a good man, than he took a turn to the worse again ‘But you must understand, he was young then, you know. ?? Remember, he was 24 then.’ Are you serious?
    What about Trayvon? He is 17!!’
    IF GZ was on his back and, as he claimed, TM slammed his head repeatedly against the pavement (GZ said the hurting was so terrible, it felt as if his head was going to explode.) How could he walk away as easily as he did? There was no pain in his face. I saw no blood. Well yes, in a later video I did. It looked strange.
    This story makes me very sad. I cant comprehend this tragedy.
    I’m a white female and I’m not a racist.
    I’m writing from my memory, and I don’t know your language well. I apologize

    I would like someone to cover/investigate the recent incident and arrest in Houma,La. I read in the Houma Courier newspaper on Tuesday of this week that a man; michael hebert age 61 was arrested on Monday of this week at the landing apartments in Houma, La. for possessing fake bombs, thousands of forged badges for FBI, CIA, and other governemnt agencies, guns and also thousands of rounds of ammuinition. There is not much information given on why he had all these items and how he obtained them. Please investigate to ensure our safety in Houma, La.
