I like writing about Katie Couric. Not to be confused with actually liking Katie Couric. The news is that she won't be delivering the news anymore. She's moving on to a job more suited to her talents: talking and giggling. I, for one, am not surprised that Katie finds the news a bit dry, but perhaps it's more a case of US not being able to take our news seriously when it's Katie speaking. I don't really blame it on the botox, or the pixie-cutie-pie hairdos and unflattering wardrobe. To me, the problem is those legs of hers. Yes, they're reasonably muscular, always, always perfectly tanned movie star style. Here's where the problem comes up....she tends not to keep them under the newsdesk where they belong, but turned to the camera, lit by pinspot, obviously oiled. They aren't bad legs. It's just that they don't really GO with the solemn responsibility of delivering the national news. Cronkite she is not, but her one single triumph at the newsdesk was catching Sarah Palin in her uninformed stupidity, and that will remain the hall of fame moment of Katie's news career. So, off to talk show heaven she goes, where our girl Katie can flail those legs around at will, spotlighting them not only visually, but perhaps doing a segment or two featuring them. Then, of course, there's always the possibility of a spin off......
