. Apparently, Brian Williams lost a little bet with someone in the newsroom. Or, perhaps he was double-dog dared. Better yet, it could be that he had received it as a gift from a small child in the mail--yes, a little third-grader whose class he had visited in New Orleans, and she had sent it to him to thank him for not forgetting about her or her city as it struggled back from the horror of Katrina! Yes! That has to be it! Nothing else can possibly explain this tie, a tacky Teletubbie purple crossed with narrow white stripes that assaulted the viewer of NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams this evening. You are on a dangerous downward Tie Spiral, Mr. Williams. I shudder to think when--and where--it might end.
