Back in the day we spent quite a bit of time talking about Weekend Today.
More specifically, we talked about Amy Robach and Jenna Wolfe. Lester? Not so much. Oh, we like Lester, he's a newsman's newsman, Jim Philips is right about that one. He doesn't do quite the same thing for us as Miss Amy, however.
2-3 years later and how things have changed. Miss Amy's perfect calves no longer grace the Weekend Today set and even Jenna has been relegated to the newsreader desk in favor of Erica Hill.
Now, we were fans of Erica's back when she was the Albino's (AKA Anderson Cooper) second banana, but these days we find her cold and without personality. Just another example of NBC screwing the pooch where personnel are concerned (we're even starting to have a soft spot for Jay Leno, but that's for another day).
Anyhoo... Jenna Wolfe... We've spent so much time on her in the past that we really couldn't let today go by without saying something. We always suspected that Jenna might be playing for the other team... Sporty, could kick our ass, no mention of a boyfriend... Today, our suspicions were confirmed when she announced that she and her partner are expecting a baby.
No time to get into something too deep here. Suffice it to say that our attitude re: gay marriage is evolving and a little uncertain at the moment. As with many of the divisive social issues we face, Federalism would seem to be the answer. At any rate, our attitude toward lesbians, particularly attractive ones, has always been... Well... We'll use the word complex and leave it at that.
For now, let's just say mazel tov to the happy family.
