  Would you Rather?
As Dan Rather hands over the reigns of the CBS Evening News, I'd like to say a few words in his defense.

Yes, the man made a mistake. But that one, overzealous era does not compare to a truly exceptional career in journalism. I mean, the guy helped evacuate wounded soldiers in Vietnam. And reported on it at the same time. I'd like to see Bill O'Crazy do that.

Let's give the man some kudos. Let's roll out some fanfare. One failure aside, he's brought the world to us with integrity and intelligence.

He bored his way into our hearts.

You are right, however, he should be respected as he covered important events such as Vietnam...and according to the Daily Show he was our eyes and ears at Mordor.

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
