Don Lemon, sporting the casual look last weekend... I hope everyone is having a nice relaxing day today! I have a couple interesting clips from the past week.
Last Saturday I posted Jill Dougherty's blog entry about the sandstorms in Baghdad. She was covering training by disabled Iraqis for a paralympic competition. This week she did a report on the event itself:
Dr. Sanjay Gupta is in Lima, Peru, and on Thursday's American Morning he did a report from there about the current food crisis happening around the globe:
And on Friday, he did a report on the attempts to break the mother-to-baby transmission of HIV:

Where in the World...?
Heading into the big Pennsylvania primary, on Saturday, Suzanne Malveaux reported from the Obama campaign in the towns of Paoli and West Conshohocken, Pennsylvania; Rick Sanchez was in Philadelphia to host a couple of special programs. Sunday, TJ Holmes and Soledad O'Brien reported on the Pope's mass at Yankee Stadium.
Monday, Ali Velshi, Candy Crowley, and Suzanne were all in Philadelphia; Dana Bash was in Selma, Alabama with the McCain campaign; and Wolf Blitzer was in New York City.
Tuesday, Suzanne was in Evansville, Indiana; Dana was in Youngstown, Ohio; Kyra Phillips began co-hosting duties on American Morning (covering Kiran Chetry's maternity leave); and Miles O'Brien was in Stamford, Connecticut, reporting on green "McMansions," a story he also covered throughout the week in prepared pieces.
On Wednesday, Candy was in DC and Suzanne was in New Albany, Indiana. Thursday, Dana was in New Orleans; Suzanne in Jeffersonville, Indiana; Sanjay Gupta in Lima, Peru; and Campbell Brown hosted AC360.
Friday, Suzanne was in Jefferson, Indiana (yes, that is apparently a different town from yesterday's appearance); Dana was in DC; Larry King hosted his show from DC (where he will be all next week); and John King (above) hosted AC360 (not from NY, so he may have been in DC also -- tonight is the annual White House Correspondents Dinner, I wonder whether he still goes to those?)

That's a wrap for me today. Enjoy the weekend, I'll see you on Monday!
