Countdown

By Brian Williams, Anchor and managing editor

Okay so the validation that we are living in strange times came as I boarded the Continental flight from Tampa to Newark this morning, and the flight attendant said our flight was in the command of "Captain Kirk". Imagine my sadness when we were forced to fly...instead of getting beamed...to Jersey. If she'd said Scotty was first officer, I had made a quiet vow to get off the plane before they closed the jetway door.

We all have to get through one more weekend. It all ends Tuesday. We have a great broadcast for you tonight. Have a great weekend.
