GREAT job hosting Wall Street Week. You had great poise, asked interesting questions, and attracted accompished reporters.

Is that you doing the dive in the picture on the wall behind you? Enjoy watching the cat.
Thoroughly prepared, perfect pitch, politically restrained.
(Though republicans will disagree)
Please keep your kitty in view!
$120,000 a year… not enough. i don’t think she has slept much over the past 5+ years. she’s always on pbs. i think she’ll get a raise if the minimum wage goes up to $15/hour.
of course I love you every night when I watch the PBS NewsHour but I especially like watching your tuxedo cat . I have one exactly like yours, who is 18 years old . Her name is Emily.
Guess I’m not the only one interested in who this person talking & interrupting the cat is lol
I’m so very proud of her work as a talented journalist! I look forward to hearing her reporting each day! Congratulations on your superb journalism! Syndee Saenz Los Angeles
