Hi everyone. Long day. It's vacation season, which meant a stint at the TODAY Show news desk for me this morning and now in for Brian tonight. No complaints, however as it got me front row access for Lady Gaga this morning.
Now I'm wrestling with the transition to a new work Blackberry and we've hit a little complication syncing my email accounts. I've been without mobile email for almost an hour now. I'm starting to develop the shakes. Not good.
On the broadcast tonight, we're covering that bizarre spy swap today complete with nose-to-nose Russian and American jets on a Austrian tarmac. You can't make this stuff up, although someone will probably soon embellish it for a movie script. I'd go see it.
Also, we're trying to figure out what to make of the latest optimistic prediction about capping the gushing oil well. We try to take these with a grain of salt, but at the same time we're all rooting for them to figure this thing out.
I hope you'll join me tonight for NBC Nightly News.
