AMERICA'S BEST COLUMNIST:Democrat Gore Will Loosen Up This Time. Really (Andrew Ferguson, 11/26/02, Bloomberg)
What a Tuesday I had last week! Usually I avoid NBC's ``Today'' show, since seeing so many cheerful people at that hour of the morning disorients me, but I made an exception to watch Katie Couric interview Al Gore.
Then I gobbled down breakfast reading USA Today's lead story -- it was about Al Gore -- and on the way to work I got through most of the Washington Post Magazine's 10,000-word profile of Al Gore. After lunch I snuck off to hear my favorite interviewer, NPR's Terry Gross, interview Al Gore, and on my way home I caught a bit of an Al Gore segment on NPR's ``All Things Considered.''
I wolfed down dinner and hustled the kids to bed so I could watch CNN's Larry King interview Al Gore. He finished in time for me to switch over to Charlie Rose, who had Al Gore as his main guest on PBS. When I went to bed the all-news radio station was promoting its interview with Al Gore. I was pooped.
And how was your Tuesday?
An Andrew Ferguson column is the pundit’s equivalent of an O. Henry story. One reads along, amused enough, until the final paragraph when the author gives the piece a surprise twist that’s devastating. Posted by Orrin Judd at November 29, 2002 2:12 PM
