A Diversionary Pop Culture Moment
My inane contribution:
Keep it High Fructose Corn Syrup Sweet and Simple, just like Katie. Say what you mean and mean what you say:
Katie's smile is the only signoff that has a chance of being added to the historical list of signoffs and she'll be cute for as long as Dick Clark was charming. It ain't broke, so don't fix it!
When Suri Cruise takes over the CBS Moonbase New Columbia anchor desk in 2050, she'll play the same historical montage of tough-guy signoffs, only to encounter Katie where she can only say, "and then there was Katie, and THAT SMILE; which neither I, nor anyone, will ever come close to matching."
And that's the way it is; metavalent, out. :)
