notes on government, sports and popular culture
Then again, I'll take the time to share a story about our good friend Dan Rather
I'll take us back to the happy, carefree days of November 2000. It was a Friday afternoon. I was still working at Triad Business News, and I had been driving around doing interviews all day. Decisions from two different judges on whether recounts could begin in separate Florida counties were expected to be issued that afternoon.I knew one decision had been issued, but I couldn't pick up on the radio exactly what it was.
As I walked into the office, I saw Rather on the television in the conference room. I took one look at his face, filled with disappointment,angst, worry. Before I heard one word, I told myself right away the decision favored Bush. My hunch was immediately confirmed.
