Katherine Ann (Katie) Couric will celebrate her 54th birthday on January 7, 2011. Despite a number of years as a co-host of the Today Show, currently the CBS anchor of the evening news and having experienced the tragic loss of her husband to colon cancer, she has never grown up. Too her credit, Couric did underscore the need for people to have colonoscopies and underwent one herself on national TV. Couric’s latest ultra liberal/leftist endeavor is to call for a Muslim sitcom to be aired, believing that Americans will have a better, kinder view of Muslims, claiming that Black sitcoms did wonders to enhance the acceptance of members of the Black community. What Couric has failed to understand is that the Black Community was not a fanatical religious based group that sought to annihilate all Americans who did not accept and embrace their interpretation of the Koran with regard to non-believers. In order to be politically correct, if such a program was ever aired, would we have at least one “amusing” bombing per episode. At age 54, perhaps Katie should once again become Katherine Ann. At least it sounds more adult and less suggestive of Peter Pan’s never growing up.
NEVERTHELESS, HAPPY BIRTHDAY ON JANUARY 7.
