Happy Monday! Please excuse me if I start the week on a note of outraged indignation! Surfing to reach a news channel - honest I do not spend my time watching daytime television - there on NBC in the Jenna and Savannah Today's Talk show - the two presenters had glasses of wine in front of them on their desks! Before ten o'clock in the morning! What message is that supposed to convey to the mostly female audience of hardworking women, mothers and homemakers in this country? How can it possibly be acceptable to be drinking alcohol at that time of the morning? NBC Today producers, please heed the Drink Responsibly guidelines. Coffee cups are appropriate for a morning show!
