As I set out on my morning run today, I saw a man in a dark suit standing on a platform placed between benches on the Promenade near the foot of Montague Street. His face was spotlit and a mike was being boomed towards him as a crew prepared to shoot. As I jogged past, I recognized him as former CBS news anchor Dan Rather. No doubt this appearance, with lower Manhattan as his backdrop, is connected with his recently filed $70 million lawsuit against his former employer resulting from the controversial handling of the story concerning President Bush's National Guard service during the Vietnam era.
Update: Reader mrmcd points out that Rather may just have been doing a segment for his regular show on HDNet. Thanx.
