For Dan Rather, Life Is Good

Posted by a4g @ 5/18/2005 10:01:00 AM

With the cancellation of Sixty Minutes II, we thought we'd revisit a story that touched a lot of our readers hearts:


For Dan Rather, Life Is Good



He once reigned supreme over the jewel in the crown of network news, the anchor of the vaunted CBS evening news broadcast. He was on call any minute of the day or night, ready to break an important bulletin.

But he's no longer Mr. Rather anymore. Now, they just call him Dan.

Rather works on a story from 'The Newsroom'


"You'd think he'd be all high and mighty," says Charlie Pruitt, "but I think he's truly happy here." Charlie is one of Dan's new found friends, who he faithfully meets each morning to discuss the day's news stories over coffee. But instead of the unblinking eye of CBS, now they chat under the golden arches.

"I've got to have my coffee," says Lorraine Liebowitz. "So does Dan. Four or five refills every morning. Not bad for $.89. We call that corner over there 'The Newsroom'. He fits right in here."

"He gets here right at six fifteen every morning, right on time," says a man who identified himself only as Pete. "Sets up his things, goes to work on his stories. Oh, so many stories. He tells us about them all, about Bush and Cheney and Rove."

But Edna Lavoris thinks the 'stories' thing is all for show. She says she looked at his laptop screen once, and he was playing solitaire. But one thing Edna thinks Dan will learn over time: "Here, it's not where you are that makes you important, but what you are."

A great question, anonymous. It was on somebody's blog site. Actually, ours. By 'revisit', we meant to indicate 'revisit'.

Actually, what it means is that we didn't have any material today, so we just served up some old warmed-over crap from the halcyon days when ideas flowed like milk and honey. Besides, since we got about 10 visitors a day back then, most of them ourselves, we didn't really think anyone would notice. Thanks for blowing our cover.

Now as to your second question, I'm afraid I don't know.
