Tonight my first TV interview will air on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric.  I talked for about 10 minutes with Anthony Mason, CBS’s veteran correspondent, which should translate after editing into about 15 seconds of fame

Many thanks to the CBS Evening News production team for the call and the opportunity, and to the TV House in Chicago for a cool, comfortable setting in which to give the interview.

5/28/09 Update:  Make that about 7 seconds.  Eight more to go.


And special thanks to Charles Osgood for including me in his 5/29/09 broadcast.  I well remember the one time I met him when I was fresh out of college and working part-time for the CBS News / NYT Poll during the 1980 presidential election, and he was, as he always has been, the consummate gentleman.
