Couric Watch: “Perky No More”

By Brian 

A tipster says we should read between the lines of Katie Couric‘s Dateline interview with Mike Wallace:

  Couric: I know you rarely ask the question, “Do you ever think about an epitaph?” But “between you and me,” do you ever think of an epitaph?

Wallace: I’ve written about it. “Tough, but fair,” and that really for a reporter… “tough but fair.” You don’t think about your epitaph, really. Do you?

Couric: Sometimes.

Wallace: Do you really?

Couric: Mine would be “Perky no more.”

Wallace: (Laughs.) Perfect. Good.
