Sunday Talking Head Thread


Here's the Sunday Talking Head line-up.  Read it and weep: 

ABC's "This Week":  British Prime Minister Tony Blair; Sens. Joe Biden, D-Del., and Gordon Smith, R-Ore.; actor Ed Asner.

CBS' "Face the Nation":  Former Secretary of State James A. Baker III and former Rep. Lee Hamilton, D-Ind., co-chairmen of the Iraq Study Group; Sens. Carl Levin, D-Mich., and Trent Lott, R-Miss.

NBC's "Meet the Press":  Baker and Hamilton.

CNN's "Late Edition":  Baker and Hamilton; Reps. Christopher Shays, R-Conn., and Jane Harman, D-Calif.; Abdul Aziz al-Hakim, leader of the Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution of Iraq; Israeli Vice Prime Minister Shimon Peres.

"Fox News Sunday":  Baker and Hamilton; Sens. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., and Sam Brownback, R-Kan.; composer Marvin Hamlisch.

So…um…do you think they'll be talking about the ISG Report today?

Today's photo is of a Northern Shrike.  It's an unusual predatory songbird in that it sometimes impales insects or other prey on barbed wire fences or twigs or other sharp spots, sometimes killing more than it can eat and using this method to store food for later when it might be scarcer.  It's a behavioral tidbit that I thought might be of interest for some reason.  (Although I've probably just ruined someone's breakfast out there…sorry.  Didn't mean to go all Wild Kingdom on you.)
