    It’s refreshing to see someone who isn’t wandering around like a lobotomy victim. My God, she took milk from children. I guess the candy from babies seemed a little too trite.

    Funny thing. Watch the video and try to image Diane Sawyer being outraged. You can’t, can you? She is so stunningly … numb and limp and matte on the news, trying to appear neutral and just failing, failing, failing. Keith Olbermann came close to the whole “I’m so angry and shocked” thing, but he always seemed like he was about to say, “Wait, wait. Let me try that again. I think I can get a better sound of outrage on that last bit.”

    Wouldn’t it be nice to have some newscasters who were capable of feeling disgust?

    And thanks, Susan. This was a gem.
