We've all been in cabs, foreign or domestic, that had us wondering if we'd survive to make the flight, the dinner reservation or zee occasional STAT run to Walgreens in the middle of the night ... but poor Lawrence O'Donnell actually had the serious Taxi Accident of city-dweller/tourist angst, and just barely finished his first week back on MSNBC's (more sane) evening 30 Rock line-up.
After a three month medical sabbatical. Lawrence, we missed ye well. Not that Ari Melber didn't do a Yeomen's Work.
Do we truly realize just how much has happened in three months?!??!
For true fun, check out Lawrence's perspective on that hiatus, and his Last Word on a week back at his anchor chair at 30 Rock [his earlier programs had been coming to us Live from NBC's Cali HQ].
He is by far one of our finer pundits. A highlight this week was his Opinion segment on 'legitimate rape', which is so worth the minutes to see or see again.
There is intelligent life on television, he and Maddow prove it. [And Saturday Night Live but they are in reruns for a bit longer.]
