Tonight begins the tenure of Katie Couric as the anchor of CBS Evening News with the “astonishing new wrinkle” that for the first time a WOMAN will be holding this job. (Yawn, zzzz…. did you forget your Ambien?)…. Back on January 10, 2005 I had something to say about this matter – and included a photograph of a woolly mammoth (or was it a mastadon?). Cathy Seipp, writing on Politics Central, is somewhat less critical than I. I can’t give such an event more than a few sentences. May the brain-drilling begin.
UPDATE: The AP’s David Brauder calls this an “historic” event: “She ended the historic evening by asking viewers for help in crafting a distinctive signoff.” The possiblities are endless.
