Well, tonight is the current administration's final State of the Union address. Not a minute too soon (and in fact, several years too late) in my personal opinion, but anyway...
Of course, my favorite part of last year's coverage will be missing this year -- that would be Michael Ware, d'uh -- but I did pull some screengrabs from last year's clip to help while away the hours this afternoon. Some of these are especially for those of you with hand fetishes... yes, we know who you are...
By the way, although coverage of the SotU will be hosted from the Election Center in NY this year, rather than far-more-picturesque DC, there is a commercial airing today that Anderson will be hosting 360 from Los Angeles tonight. He'll have reaction to the speech and a preview of tomorrow's Florida primary. All in prep for the debate he's hosting Wednesday from Simi Valley.
(By the way, the AC360 blog has a new home, so if you rely on an RSS feed to let you know when it's updated, you've missed out on a lot today, including David Doss' post about a bomb scare for their flight -- did you know they still designated a United flight 23 from NY to LA? Sorry, I should explain further: United 23 is the flight that conspiracy-theorists believe was also scheduled to be hijacked on 9/11. I used to work with one, I couldn't tell you whether there is any basis for the belief. The fact that the call came from the Allentown area makes me wonder whether this is a regular call for that flight.)
And I thought about saving this clip for my ATC post Saturday, but since there's been so much discussion about this topic, and we'll be hearing it a few thousand times today... From yesterday's Late Edition, Wolf explains why; note the laughter from the panel:
Enjoy (?) the speech and all the coverage tonight!
