Slack cutting

I don’t much care for Katie Couric, but I was reading the Red Eye yesterday and the Tribune today and was pretty dumbfounded as to why there’s a question whether she can “handle” doing the CBS evening news. If anything we’re safer now that she’s behind a desk and reading everything she says. And even for a non-supporter such as myself, I think it’s terribly sexist and insulting to say she’s too “perky” for the job. She tends to be perky on the Today show because it’s a morning show that has segments like “Eye shadow trends for ‘tweens.” Also, who watches the CBS evening news?
