The Other Woman

The biggest perk I've earned for writing a few blog posts for PBS is that it's given me the chance to pester the staff for favors. I am so grateful to Jeannine Harvey in particular for making this happen:

It's an autographed photo of Margaret Warner, as you can see, that arrived just in time to be an early Christmas present for Jack. Jack loves Margaret. Whenever the NewsHour comes on, Jack heaves a small, lovesick sigh and says, "Oh, Margaret, what a cunning stick pin you have in your lapel tonight," or he asks me, "Do you like Margaret better in navy or taupe?" I realize I can't compete with a woman reporting from Kandahar in a flak jacket, and I've come to terms with that.
