Warping through cyberspace I came across the story about Dan Rather, anchorman of CBS Evening News, leaving his seat, which he held more than four decades. I am actually kind of sorry to see him leave. He was a good anchorman. I enjoyed his program. But, the mistake he made with President Bush's medical records was fatal, in my mind.

The funny thing is not that he lost his job, but what happened to him a while ago. Rather has always been a 'rather' colorful personage.
