Back in the offices, which have seen so much heartbreak, so much joy, and so much heartbreak yet again, there's an intern. I believe she's—yes, she's printing out e-mails for Jack Cafferty's producer. It is literally happening as we speak. We are seeing things like this, just an outpouring of love and caring for people at this network. And people at this network are helping one another and standing by one another, and—
ANDERSON: Excuse me, Anderson, I'm sorry for interrupting. To listen to CNN employees thanking each other and complimenting each other, you know, I got to tell you, there are a lot of people out here who are very upset, and very angry, and very frustrated. And when they hear reporters and interns slap—you know, thanking one another, it just, you know, it kind of cuts them the wrong way right now.

ANDERSON: Anderson, I get the anger that is out there, and I—I—I understand it. More could be done. In time, there will be investigations and lawsuits and, we hope, healing. But for now, there is anger and there is heartbreak. Some answers to some questions, we pray, when 360 returns.
ANDERSON: Frustration at CNN. A dramatic scene. Why did it take so long for the commercial break to end? The segments seem to blend together. At times it's easy to forget what network you're on. At a certain point it feels like all the words have already been spoken: "When we return." "Welcome back." "Stunning development." On the surface, it all seems so mundane. The drama is happening deep underneath. It is hard to imagine a place more exposed to the elements. There—there has been anger, and especially in these last couple hours. There's a lot of finger-pointing going on. There is desperation and there is danger. The waves of sadness have just begun. And what is being done to stop it? What can be done to stop it?
360 hours a day, 360 days a week, the feelings don't let up for Anderson Cooper. We, of course, will bring them to you live.
