ABC and NBC sent their anchors on the road. NBC's Brian Williams broadcast from Washington DC, where he filed a Coming Home feature about an amputees' ward at Walter Reed military hospital. He called the prostheses, "the titanium trademark of this busy body shop."
ABC's Charles Gibson went to Dallas, first stop on his American Road Trip meet-and-greet with affiliates. He told us about the natural gas drilling boom in Fort Worth--part energy windfall, part neighborhood blight. The city is built on top of the Barnett Shale. Check out the Baptist Bishop praising divine geology.
ABC's second Texas feature (subscription required) was assigned to Mike von Fremd on the million feral swine, smart and vicious, that infest the Lone Star state's farmland. Hunters wanted so that more wild boar can end up on the menu. NBC's Robert Bazell, by the way, warns us in Life Line, that too much red meat can lead to breast cancer in women.
