We need to agree as a nation: no more 3D for now. There I was, watching the Grammy Awards, when suddenly it switched to 3D for the Michael Jackson tribute. Programmers have to realize: It's not as if we're sitting home watching television with a pair of those nasty 3D glasses at the ready. I thought we might have a pair in the kitchen drawer (everyone has a kitchen drawer like this: I found 3 AA batteries, 5 AAA batteries, one 9-volt battery and one C battery, a dried-up tube of Super Glue, dozens of unidentified keys, but no 3D glasses), but I was wrong. It needs to stop. Besides: If Beyonce looks bad in those glasses, what possible chance do the rest of us have?
Congratulations to my friend Candy Crowley, who got a new job at CNN. While I'm a rabidly loyal member of the home team here at NBC News/MSNBC, Candy is a press corps favorite because she's a good person and a great writer. While I wouldn't advise anyone to enter into a competition with my pal David Gregory on Sundays, I'm happy for my friend Candy.
We are back for a new week, and we hope you can join us starting tonight.
