Bob Costas - One of the Best

The recent flap over Bob Costas' comments about gun control explains the question I've asked for years: 'Why didn't he ever become a huge star?' The guy is so likable and smart.

The problem is that he's just too smart. The average viewer isn't clever enough to 'get' him. That's why his old show, 'Later', was canceled. It was one of the best talk-shows ever. But I imagine the typical viewer was thinking, 'This makes my brain hurt. Me want simple. More jokes and mindless cheering.'
