The neighbors are going to be insufferable
Dan Rather just announced that he will be retiring as the anchor on the CBS News next March. He's 73 years old and has been a network anchor longer than anyone else in teevee history. All in all it's probably a fairly neutral development as far as the quality of the news is concerned. That is, unless the network decides to take advantage of the change to undertake a really stupid rebranding effort. Such behavior is not unknown in teevee news. The worst thing about his leaving will be the triumphal gloating from Right Blogistan, who, I'm sure, will interpret this as a personal victory over the liberal media.
