Are the bookers on the Today show working from an old Rolodex

    Sirs, Madames,

    In its blanket coverage of l'affaire Tigre, Today's Sunday crew is interviewing S.A.S., identified as a Philadelphia Inquirer columnist. No truth in advertising, I guess. Accompanied on a two-man panel by Len Berman who was let go by WNBC. I guess everyone else was working.

    He was rehired as Philadelphia Inquirer columnist. Hard to believe they couldn't get someone better than that, however. How about NBC's own Dan Patrick?

    This is a notorious no-show weekend at the pitstop in question.

    Sir or Madame,

    As discussed elsewhere in the Journalism Topics his status at the Inky is somewhat less certain than you portray it. He is not among the 24 smiling faces on the paper's sports-columnists' webpage. Nothing by him about Tiger in today's paper or about anything else in a week's of stuff. If he's looking to land back in the paper his appearance on Today (and his billing) is a bit of negotiation out of Kim Jong Il's handbook.

    The Inky was ordered to rehire him, but I don't think they've published anything by him since the court order.
