It pleases me that Elizabeth Vargas has gotten the nod, along with Bob Woodruff, to replace Peter Jennings as anchor of ABC's "World News Tonight." I've been a Vargas fan ever since she was reading the headlines on "Good Morning America" back in the early 1990s -- I once was a member of an Elizabeth Vargas fan club on the Internet. I'm glad to see a woman get the top spot, though these co-anchor arrangements can be tumultuous.

I'm glad, too, that ABC News is getting its house in order. "World News Tonight" is one of about three network television broadcasts I watch regularly, and I was genuinely devastated when Peter Jennings died last summer.
