I Need You Atticus

We have all been watching a lot of sad and scary news this weekend.  You probably have too.  

When news is this bad, I wish I had someone I trusted to break it to me.  No matter how many news channels I surf, I can't find anyone I really trust to tell me what is going on in the world.


If I could assemble my news dream team I would hire:

 Atticus Finch - lead anchor

 Aunt Bee - commentary for the common folk

 Bill Murray - weather

Tonya Harding - hard hitting sports coverage

Who would you like to see bringing you the news?

I'd almost give up my morning coffee to hear this broadcast. You made me smile, which is hard these last few days.

What a dream team. They would all be straight shooters with nothing left to question.

By the way, I did a 'Sunday Shout Out' about you yesterday on my blog.

Cheeseboy said...

Ha ha! Awesome. Now that is a newscast I'd actually watch. Maybe I'd include Will Farrell as the Anchorman though. Definitely Bill Murray though!

Sarah said...

Oh Laraine, isn't it obvious? There's only one person on my dream team - YOU! So start a news blog, mmmkay?

FYI - I made the mistake of checking your blog the day after my c-section. Not a good idea. You made me laugh and it hurt. Don't worry, I forgive you.

Thanks for keeping me laughing through my post-partum haze!

Robin Williams doing the entire thing in different voices. He's the only one I trust.

Sue said...

I agree with Sarah. I like my news the Larainy Days way.

;)

Marti said...

I'd watch that. Throw in Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi) for a little investigative reporting, and I'm there!

Lorraine,

I'm Lindsay Baum, used to be Lindsay Seaman. I remember you and your cute little kids from years back. And your hilarious Christmas cards in the mail every year. When I ever I see your mother or brother or ect. around Snowflake - I think of you. Your blog is hilarious...you have a real talent.

Oh, and Atticus Finch has always held a special place in my heart. My vote is with him.

I'd be tuning in every night at six for that crew.

I think you nailed it. Especially Aunt Bea. She'd probably serve us a nice slice of cake afterwards.

I love your choices ... and I think that you should do the commercials.

Great news dream team. I got a mental picture of Aunt Bee doing her commentary. Complete with the hankie hanging from the sleeve. LOL
