News That Will Drive You To Celebrate

Happy Hour News Briefs

PBS tells us…

“The U.S. Postal Service is honoring the late PBS NewsHour anchor Gwen Ifill with a commemorative Forever stamp.

“The stamp, which was unveiled Tuesday, features a 2008 photo of Ifill with the words “BLACK HERITAGE” at the top and Ifill’s name at the bottom.

“It is the 43rd stamp in the Black Heritage series and one of several new designs that will be issued next year.

“Ifill worked at the NewsHour for 17 years, covering eight presidential campaigns and moderating two vice-presidential debates. She was also the moderator and managing editor of “Washington Week.”

I never thought much of PBS as a news organization, but I thought the world of Gwen Ifill. It’s a very fitting honor, and I will be happy to buy an Ifill booklet of stamps.

She is still missed.

    I miss her as well. She was level-headed, bright, and engaging. I can’t believe she’s gone.

    And I’ll buy her stamps, too!

    Dollars to doughnuts the president* has one of his minions send Ifill to the same notional limbo as Tubman.

    The Mrs. and I have this same conversation almost nightly. Judy Woodruff doesn’t even come close to filling her shoes.
