8:06 am
captions by looking at video and breaking it down. a couple different news outlets were able to break down what she said word for word. >> all right. there was agreement on what she said? >> uh-huh. >> thank you. >> the journalist in me just wondered. i couldn't understand it myself. five minutes after the hour. hi, bob. what kind of outburst do you have? >> it's tough to pass the tennis ball. maybe not fatal. i don't know. i think i'm the only one who doesn't have one today. dallas, 5.8 inches of rain yesterday alone. lufkin, texas, 2.12. even new orleans, 1.96 to 1.98 inches near new orleans. it's all the same system. notice the big satellite picture i have up there. a couple areas of low pressure. one in the upper lows of the

yesterday. instead, police have found a body that they now think is 24-year-old annie le. investigators are doing tests, trying to positively id her. correspondent richard lieu, the investigation had gone from a missing persons case to a homicide now. so what is next for the police? >> yeah, you know what they're doing right now, focusing on some clothes that are bloodstained that they had found there on the location. officers finding it hidden in the ceiling tiles where le was last seen alive. they're not the same clothes she was wearing in surveillance video. police are testing the clothes. it's possible the clothes aren't linked to the case at all. it's one piece at this moment. >> there was also a lot of police activity at a trash facility. what are they looking for there? >> the fbi is saying it's routine here to follow the trash. it's in hartford, connecticut, where all the trash from the yale lab usually goes. it's possible the evidence could be destroyed.

brilliant money making people that brought these companies to their knees, that brought the world economy it tos knees, that required your money, a $700 billion bailout. yet we still haven't dealt with some of these issues that are out there, like too big to fail, like aig, executive pay, and this very patchwork regulatory system that so far congress just hasn't addressed. gas. let's get you some good news. still inching down. getting a little bit cheaper to fill up in most parts of the country. good news in a bad economy. you often hear economists say that when gas prices go down, it's kind of like a big national tax cut. aaa's national average down to $2.57. that means that compared to those record highs last summer, more than $1.50 cheaper for every gallon. good for you. good for the economy. >> i like it. >> yeah. >> very good. i'm interested to see if people's interest in smaller, more fuel-efficient cars is going to wane because we have
8:15 am
cheaper gas prices. >> i think so far people haven't forgotten. they still think it's very possible for prices to go up to that. we keep this prices for a long time, it sure could. congressman joe wilson apologized to president obama for his "you lie" outbursts. it's not enough for some democrats. what they're insisting he does next and how he's spending. @óna

don't expect another apology from congressman joe wilson for his "you lie" outburst. democratic leaders want him to say i'm sorry on the house floor for yelling at president obama during his health care speech to congress. wilson, though, says the president accepted his first apology and that's enough. >> my whole life has been built around civility. but as i heard what i believe was not accurate information and because i knew the issue, i knew that there had already been votes on providing for citizenship verification and for the speech to indicate that this would be enforceable, it was not. and so i spoke out. i called immediately. i did apologize. but i believe one apology is sufficient. >> if wilson does not apologize publicly, house democrats plan to introduce a resolution of disapproval. that puts them on the record as condemning his outburst. but you tell me. should joe wilson have to
8:19 am
apologize again or was the first apology enough? tim in michigan says, yes, congressman wilson should apologize again. he disrespected not only the president, but the office of the president and the congress as well. but nanny texted us to say one apology should have enough. if the president sef eaccepted that's what matters. john sent us this text. i feel he did it on an open floor. he should be man enough to apoll jazz there, too. this probably gave you a response here. i'm sure we'd like to have that. text your comments to hlntv. that is 45688. the keyword that you have to start your text with is robin. e-mail us if you prefer that way. gocnn.com/robin and hit the contact button. facebook us if you prefer that way. for the first time in almost 30 years, a mom has won a major tennis tournament. i'm so glad for her. i'm surprised it's been the

8:42 am
they've made some of the biggest cuts on the number of seats flying since right after 9/11. that's capacity. basically, it's recession. they can't afford to have empty seats right now. how you're really going to see it is fewer flights for you to choose from. normally it would also mean higher prices. but experts say they're not so sure about that. maybe fares will go up a little bit, but not by too much. at least not until the economy recovers. they say there's just not enough demand right now for them to really raise the ticket prices. i'll tell you what could become more expensive, though. a new set of tires. basically, the cheapest tires that are on the market are going off the market because of the big trade fight between the u.s. and china. the president slapped new tar f tariffs of up to 35%. the cheapest tires probably all but going to disappear for a little while. the big picture, too, besides just tires, there is a lot of fear that this is going to start basically a trade fight between

8:46 am
we've got roughly 13 or 14 child molesters in the zip code. >> wonderful he's a member of the church. he does not need to be ordained as a minister with a position of that kind of authority. >> the church says he won't minister to children. he says he completed the sex offender treatment and told the church about his past. don't expect another apology from congressman joe wilson for his "you lie" outburst. democratic leaders want him to say sorry on the house floor for yelling at president obama during his health care speech to congress. but listen to what the president is now saying about it. >> congressman wilson shouting out during -- during my joint session speech was not just a surprise not only to me, but i think to a lot of his republican colleagues who said that it wasn't appropriate. he apologized afterwards, which i think -- i appreciated. i've said so. >> if wilson does not apologize
