Thanks for Writing In!

You guys are awesome.  We were really impressed with the number and quality of responses we received after asking for your opinions on the Iranian leader's speech at Columbia University.  You can check out the original posting by our producer, Gerald Smith, here.

We hope this blog becomes a place where you'll regularly log on and sound off.  Any show can give you information; we want to include what you have to say.  So please tell us your thoughts on anything you see on our program or in this blog, especially if you have a unique view on something or feel differently than the other folks who write in.  We won't criticize you, but we will be happy to hear from you.

Oh, and many of you did a nice job on spelling the Iranian president's name.  I won a county spelling bee back in the day, but I was never asked to spell "Ahmadinejad."

    I think that visiting Columbia University was not such a good idea. He would have been better off staying where he was. Although I said it wasn't a good idea, I think that the Columbia headmaster shouldn't have addressed him as all those mean comments. It wasn't polite or even neccesary to stand up on the podium for 45 minutes, insulting Ahmadinejad like that. All he should have said were some welcoming words to the Columbia University, and then be done with it!

    Our ongoing study of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights, allows my class to have great debates or deliberations on whether President Ahmadinejad should have been even invited to speak at Columbia or not. Thanks for your coverage of this story and the United Nations.

    No it does not make sense. When he talks about gays in his country (and how there is none) what he must mean, is how he kills them. When he says they have no gays, no wonder why they have so few! That is because in their county he kills them! He kills them.
    this is all I have to comment on, thank you for reading.

    I didn't like the fact that the questions that people asked were the same answers from Ahmadinejad's speech.

    We(Americans) should have allowed Iranian President (not exactly the best name for it) Ahmadinejad to visit Ground Zero. His invitatin to Columbia has nothing to do politics, or the media. If l Gore invitated George Bush to a private party, would it spark outrage with the media. Most likely. Notice I said PRIVATE party, it's not the media business. So is your business to protest a very rare event of a big player in the world's futureto speak at a university, which that is a great way for the college to teach it's students.
