Question of the day: Myanmar's military is blocking aid. What should the United States do?

Thursday, May 15, 2008 - 12:00 AM

Up to 2.5 million Burmese were "severely affected" by last week's cyclone, but the ruling military junta is blocking the aid they need. What's the United States to do? What should we do? Share your ideas by clicking "get in the mix", by emailing, or by calling our SpinVox line at 1-877-8-MY-TAKE.

I have already expressed my criticism of the show [it's awful] , howvere this web sitre is not easy to navigate either. There are at vleast three ways to access the comments such as this. One way provides the comment section, another lets the viewer rate the comments. It takes several moves to find the "right" section/topic on which to comment. As others have pointed out, most comments are about the show, not the news.

bring back Morining Edition please.

Lorenzo and Others, please take note of what discussion thread you are putting your comments into. Critiques on the show should be put into reinvent Mornings section and not in other discussions. Thanks for adhering to discussions etiquette for all of us.

TakeAway is ruining my morning routine. I'll even listen to 10:10 WINS to avoid this dumb show!

You still got it wrong re Berma. You didn't accept responsibility for interrupting your guest nor did you give any thought to the fact that your guest was asking permission ot enter someone's eleses country by suggesting he highten the retoric by calling the situation "hostage taking".

The point you said you we missed had nothing to do with you guest. You were wrong, you degraded your program. Sounded like Jerry Springer.

When a mistake is made own up to it.
