24. I'm just checking in to say "here" before the Keith O. pile-on starts

they should be here any moment.

Keith's work speaks for itself and I like what he has done for cable news coverage. Likable or not, he was a critical part, if not the catalyst of what is still at MSNBC even in his absence.

In the case of Current TV, Keith is taking a job he didn't need to take and probably wants to be sure that his efforts have a point and create something. I like what one of the network's execs said when he said they just want Keith to be Keith. If Keith can be Keith, that may be the difference in the other things Current TV gaining the critical mass they need to succeed.

I like Keith.

I like Al Gore.

I like Current.

I expect some craziness as Current tries to become for real and a big deal. I hope they succeed and I hope Keith is part of that.
