There were two other stories covered by all three networks. Each had a follow-up on last week's Mississippi River floods: CBS' Ben Tracy (no link) showed us the clean-up in Cedar Rapids; ABC's Gigi Stone (embargoed link) profiled riverfront homeowners returning to sodden homes; and NBC's Michelle Kosinski stayed with the sandbaggers in Missouri. Secondly, all three filed an obituary for that foul-mouthed atheist whose seven words to this day, even posthumously, have to be bleeped out by order of Federal Communications Commission censors. George Carlin's obits were filed by NBC's George Lewis, CBS' Jim Axelrod and ABC substitute anchor Elizabeth Vargas.
