Dan Rather has finally lost it
This column by Ray Richmond contains various bits and pieces of Dan Rather's silliness, but none greater than this VERY rich quote:
Describing his love of CBS and CBS News, Rather observed in the interview
last year: "In my mind and the minds of the people I work with, this is a
magical, mystical kingdom -- our version of Camelot. And we feel we are working
at a kind of roundtable of King Arthur proportions. Now, it may be that this
kingdom exists only in our minds. But that makes it no less real for those of us
who live it every day."
And then there was this: "Ed Murrow's ghost is here. I've seen him and
talked to him on the third floor of this building many times late at night. And
I can tell you that he's watching over us."
Perhaps the folks at CBS may want to call the Ghostbusters to do a little clean up. And maybe Dan might want to have the medication tweaked just a little bit. I'm thinking CBS is relieved by Dan's decision to retire.
And somehow all of the erratic silliness begins to make more sense.
