The pipes, the pipes are calling

Dan Rather signs off tomorrow, March 8, as anchor of the "CBS Evening News." Dan Rather is my hero, and I will miss him--though when it comes to evening news, I'm more of a Peter Jennings man. (I think Anderson Cooper is super hot, but his show is trashy. As for Brian Williams, I now ignore NBC news as automatically as I ignore Fox News.)

All that established, I wanted to share with you this transcript of Rather's interesting and poignant appearance on "The Late Show With David Letterman" last week. The link is to a page on a feeble anti-Rather web site, and I don't want you to think I endorse that rot. But I enjoyed the transcript.
