It is some cruel irony that these most public people are also the most awkward. Five heads, helmet hair, impossible to pronounce last names like Chiaverini… these are all impediments that you think would compel someone to lead a more private life. But alas, no normal person has ever doned a crayon colored polyester blazer or Men’s Warehouse ensemble and sat behind a local news desk. Keep in mind that the above examples are not from Podunk, Iowa… they are from Chicago, which should represent like the top 1% in news anchor talent. Are there really no more normal, graceful individuals… no one who looks as effortless reading a teleprompter as they might in a J Crew catalog? Oh well. Can’t complain about the boost of confidence these awktards give me every morning.
