You Gotta Be Kidding Me...

I just found out that Barbara Walters picked Duchess Camilla as the Most Fascinating Person of 2005. The Most Fascinating.

As if we needed any more proof that Barbara Walters and I are fascinated by very different things.

I will never forget Barbara Walters walking out onto the stage at the Primetime Emmys one year like Queen Victoria, to wag her dowager finger at the audience and regally and disapprovingly lecture the industry on their responsibility to inform as well as entertain, to elevate the national discourse, to raise the level of consciousness, and not to pander.

This within a week of her Tonya Harding interview.

And now this old bloodclot has given a daily forum to Star friggin' Jones and Elisabeth Whatever-Her-Name-Is. Lecture us again, Barbara.

At least if she'd pick a name she could pronounce.
