Just back from tending to Ma for a few days. When I'm there, the TV is often on, so as the news blares incessantly, I've noticed something heartening. Most of the blow-dried anchors are forgettable even-featured types - there is of course a preponderance of young blonde women - but two of the major D.C. political correspondents are big-boned gals. And guess what? They have something to say. They seem to be real reporters covering a beat. With sources. Getting stories.
