Sunday Talking Head Thread


Here's this morning's talking head line-up — a few interesting names, and a few yawns.  Read it and weep:

NBC's "Meet the Press": California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger; Reps. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., and Ike Skelton, D-Mo., retired Gens. Wayne Downing and Barry McCaffrey.

John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Jack Reed, D-R.I.; Iraqi National Security Adviser Mowaffak al-Rubaie; former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger; former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski; Maryland Republican Lt.

This morning's photo is of a snowy egret.  In case you are interested in more information on them, there's a lovely site from a preservation society for Assateague Island that you might enjoy.  They are gorgeous birds.  If you ever have an opportunity, take a little pause and watch one wade through the shallows fishing.  Their patience and perseverence is both soothing and steadying…well, unless you are a little fish, I suppose…
