My post was bumped on Wednesday night because of BA's excellent q & a with John King. I'd like to thank Mr. King for taking the time to respond to our questions and to BA for the fine job she did.
I hope you are enjoying a relaxing weekend? Our friends at CNN don't seem to know what down time is. So with that in mind we going to start a new weekly feature here at ATC called 'Out of the Box' (thanks to BA for the title suggestion). Every Wednesday (unless bumped by a q & a or breaking news) I will bring you the latest on what CNN's anchors and reporters are up to when they are away from the studio. Who knows, maybe we'll come across a personal appearance in your neighborhood? ~Phebe
