How ridiculous it was to see Brian Williams anchoring Tuesday's Nightly News from outside Los Angeles. As if there's anything he could tell us from the site that he couldn't tell us from the New York studio. But the reason is obvious. Brian is a firefighter groupie. When it comes to firefighters, Brian's like a 12-year-old girl at a Jonas Brothers concert. If there are lots of firefighters assembled in one place, that's where Brian wants to be. Dressed in his yellow shirt and using nifty firefighter lingo, I expected to see Brian wearing one of those little red firefighter's hats that are sold in toy stores. Maybe next month, Brian will want to be a cowboy or an astronaut.
