Pat has been back in the anchor chair for a couple of days now, but I've been unable to watch because of a mysterious, two-day cable outage that seems to have rectified itself. Yay!
I was really happy to finally get to watch "In the Papers" with Pat doing the delivery. No offense to K-Shaughn, who did a fine job of anchoring in Pat's absence, but it's hard to mimic Pat's special blend of seriousness and sarcasm when he does ITP. To wit: his announcement of an item in today's Post, which noted that Kim Kardashian is moving to NYC. Pat wryly noted that, with her seal of approval, we can all feel a little better about our own decisions to live here.
Another interesting ITP item--Mexicans work longer hours than Americans. This is probably a surprise to no one, except of course for those idiots at Top Gear (a show I used to like before this flap).
On another note, I have to say that Jamie Shupak looked adorable this morning. I want that frock! Also, they should probably make her the station's wardrobe stylist and throw some extra money her way.
