Dan who?

Words of sense from No More Mister Nice Blog:
Dan Rather Stepping Down

For as long as I can remember, he seemed half nuts. A few years back I used to watch his news broadcast regularly; it was in a period when he was obsessed with, transfixed by, El Niño. When he had a non-weather story, he'd introduce it by saying, "We're going to bring you a hard news look at" whatever the subject was -- big emphasis on "hard news." It was weird. And the news wasn't always "hard" -- sometimes it was the same old TV pseudo-news, oversold in this eccentric way.

That's how I'll remember Dan Rather.

Dan Rather was not a hero to any liberal or leftist I know. Only right-wingers think he was. They're deliriously happy. We're not even mildly upset.
Maybe you're not upset, but I'm in mourning. I can't eat, I can't sleep, I can't concentrate on my addiction to Internet porn. To think that I will never hear that annoying Canadian accent again, see that pinched face, that oh-so-superior smirk of a smile...I can't go on...

Oh, wait - you said Dan Rather is retiring. That's very different.

Never mind.
