Katie Couric took over as the anchor of CBS News last night. I must have been flossing my toenails or something, because I didn't remember (or care).
Which is a bit of a pity, isn't it? Newscasts are increasingly so unimportant that the change of an anchor (and, one assumes, the tone and direction of the program) goes by ignored by most people - media coverage notwithstanding. I've found the New York Times to be increasingly irrelevant to my life, and not just because I no longer live in NYC.
That's not to say that I'm getting more news from blogs or the web, my intake of news from any source is less. Maybe I'm on a diet.
