Dear Viewers,

I am putting the viewers to work today and having them do all of GretaWire — except the streaming of the video. Today we are putting on our blog the video from last night's segment on the new book by Scott Peterson's (search) half sister. To watch the video, click on the link in the video box above.

Here are your e-mails:

"On the Record" is my least favorite program because of the irritating anchor. Not only does she have a most annoying voice, but she doesn't even finish her sentences. Also she is so intent on interrupting her guests , we do not have a chance to hear everything they are trying to say. I wish she would just shut up.

I love your show... you follow all the stories we care about. It is always up to the minute. And I learn so much. Thank you!

E-mail No. 3

"Canoedeling?" You legal people. It's like you have your own language.

ANSWER: Laura Ingle used the term and she is not a lawyer. This is not a legal term and it is not spelled correctly in your note. (I don't always spell perfectly, either.) However, I do admit that lawyers do have their own language and much of it is unnecessary and plain communication is much better.

It is fine for a thousand dollar an hour lawyer to tell the Petersons just to let it go (referring to the lien on the house). Maybe he can help them out. It's legitimate and the house is still half Scot's. They owned the house prior to the murder, so he is not enriching himself from the murder. California is a community property state, so half will go to Scot (minus the lien to his parents out of his half) and half to Laci's heirs. I really don't see anything wrong with that. Do you?

I agree wholeheartedly with Geoffrey Figer (sp). Scott could not have all of a sudden started lying at age 30. It was going on his whole life and Jackie either encouraged it or did nothing to subdue it. I think Jackie's adopted daughter, Ms. Byrd, is very lucky to have not been raised in that home. P.S. The woman/mother is almost always in charge of the children. This kind of reminds me of the Sante Chimes (sp) situation.
Love your shoe,

ANSWER: Which shoe do you like? Left or right? Just kidding.

Dear Greta,
I just wanted to let people know that it is not unheard of for people these days to sleep with their doors unlocked... My family is from a very small town and no one locks their doors, and everyone leaves their keys in their ignition still to this day... I can understand how people in larger cities do not understand this as I did not when my family first moved there, but as time passed and I got to know everyone in the town, somehow it seemed normal... anyhow, I am not saying I have any idea what happened to Jessica... I don't know if her father is telling the truth... it's not for me to decide without all the facts, but I just wanted others to know that in small towns such "careless" behaviors are not unheard of.
Love the show Greta and feel free to send some of that snow our way... we are wayyyyy too dry for this time of year.

I think Jessica left her room on her own and went outside. Perhaps she thought she had heard an animal. She thought she’d be out for just a few moments. Then something happened. Perhaps she was seen by the wrong person, who was driving by. Remember, this happened in Florida, so going out for a moment in your nightgown isn’t as unlikely as it would be up north.

Dear Greta,
I'm very disgusted that some people (including your own panel "expert" ... I call him Stringy-Headed-Jeff) are trying to hold Jackie Peterson somewhat responsible for Scott's actions, calling them dysfunctional. Are they therapists now? And they are all jumping at her for moving furniture out of Scott's house. Excuse me? It was my understanding that the judge ruled the contents of the house belonged to the Peterson family... so what is the problem? How about Laci's mother breaking into the house BEFORE Scott was convicted? That was an actual crime, and everyone just boo-hoo'd and felt sorry for poor Sharon. Give me a break. This is supposed to be "Fair and Balanced?"
I love your show Greta, but I am about at the point I cannot stand to listen to Jeff without gagging. For an expert, he sure isn't very intelligent. You could improve your show immensely if you would ditch him!

Hi Greta,
Just a thought regarding Jessica. It appears that the missing toy (stuffed animal) may be a real clue. Consider this, someone took the toy earlier, then later, taped on the window and said "look, I have found your toy". She would have opened the door and gone outside. Just a thought.

E-mail No. 10

I will make this short and to the point. Someone in that house knows or has an idea exactly what has happened with Jessica, if not then they left the opportunity open for something to happen to this child. Nothing makes sense to me. Everyone goes to bed, dad is at work, no he is at his girlfriend's, which is it? Jessica is in her room, grandma and grandpa are in another bedroom and the front door is left unlocked? I cannot help but feel the authorities need to stay close to the home. I feel they may find the answer there. Something is just not right with the whole situation. Even grandma didn't seem that terribly upset to me when she called to report her missing. As a grandmother myself I would have been hysterical! All of it kind of seems staged to me.
