Today's post will have to be quick, as time is short and there's more travel ahead. After arriving in LA last night (early this morning) and then broadcasting from the Staples Center, we're back at our NBC News Los Angeles Bureau for Nightly News, then on a plane back to New York for tomorrow's broadcast. I just read one writer on the Web who summed up today's Michael Jackson proceedings as "exciting, sad and confusing all at the same time." While it's early yet where assessments are concerned, I guess I concur. Tonight we'll cover the meetings between President Obama and Putin... and Palin and Mitchell (no relation) and all the other news of the day, which we're compiling now, unsure of exactly what time zone we're in. I hope you can join us tonight from Los Angeles.
