When I tried to post this morning, "Blogger" wasn't working . . . so it's taken all day to get my thoughts on the Dan Rather special up here!

It took 53 minutes -- yes, almost the entire hour -- before last night's Rather retrospective managed to mention the Memogate scandal that caused Dan's exodus from the anchor chair. Not surprisingly, the retrospective was pretty much a puff piece . . . but amusingly, it reminded me of a job interview where an interviewer asks, "What's your worst fault?" And then the job seeker replies, "Well, I work too hard."

Dan's fault? He's got too much "passion" for the truth. Yeah, that's the ticket. That's why he's gone after Republican presidents. He "reports" without "fear or favor." Really? Should have heard the softball lovefest between him and Saddam Hussein, if you believe that one!

Whatever. Gone is gone, and not a moment too soon. I'm sure the people at "60 Minutes" can't wait to get this too-"passionate" "reporter" on their turf.
