Shouted From the Housetops!

Two thousand years ago Jesus said, “whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in the inner rooms will be proclaimed upon the housetops.” (Luke 12:3).  It’s still true today.

Kyra Phillips, a CNN news anchor, learned it the hard way.  Due to a number of errors, her wireless microphone was left on as she took a break, and her words were transmitted on the air, at one of the worst possible times:  on top of the speech President Bush was giving in New Orleans!  Apparently she was giving an analysis of men in general and her husband and brother in particular (I take it she has a rather dim view of most men but a much higher opinion of her husband).  You can read more about it here.  Oh yes, and did I say all this was from CNN’s women’s restroom?!

The most comical aspect of it all is that Ms. Phillips is a host of the program “Live From...”  I’m sure the show’s producers never dreamed that their host would give an impromptu commentary “live from” the women’s restroom!
