Cool. Dunno if Megan will appreciate how quickly Plath is pigeonholed here, but good press!

Also notable to me how Young the NYT and CBS staffers on camera look to me in my decrepitude...I can imagine others being impressed, positively or negatively (all positive by me) how they both look hapa, but I won't say I'm alarmed so much as struck by how much like recently-ex-babies even adults in their mid/late '20s are starting to appear...you kids with your teleprompters and your delicate framing of people in their '60s...

It's everywhere. Some of them look like recent college grads--if that.

I wasn't too impressed with the interviewer at all. Who cares if they look young or are young? A professional journalist ought to be articulate and informed. His speech was like that of a teenage kid and he made it seem as if the reviewer was there to suggest books to himself alone. I didn't get the sense that he was aware of what any of the books were about either. He should've at lest read the jacket blurbs prior to going on air.

Well, if you're expecting professionalism...you're going to be disappointed.
