Off the Wire

Dear Fellow Roger-istas,

As we herald the arrival of a much-welcomed spring, I think it’s a good time for all of us to reflect on what a treasure Scott Rogers truly is for Baton Rouge.

Baton Rouge politics has its John McGinnis. Sports has its Jimmy Ott and Julio Melara. And love has its Holly Clegg.

Just do like me, and get yourself a good Rogering.

But in a time when this big ol’ world is getting so crazy, and we rely increasingly on Oprah Winfrey and The View for common sense (no offense, Julio), we should remember our dose of reality has been here all along.

Scott-Rogers-Around-TownWith his natty wardrobe, splendidly groomed pate, and silky British lilt, Scott beams into our living rooms each and every Saturday and Sunday morning on his delightfully informative Around Town TV show. We’re handed heaping doses of good news and meaty softballs on silver platters of sublime digital airwaves. And all we’re asked in return is to suffer through a few commercial breaks for our gobs of Scotty goodness.

If you’re feeling all dumpy with war and death in Syria, don’t despair. If the simmering crisis between Russia and Ukraine in the Crimea has you on the rim of the poop-chute of life, don’t become a Gloomy Gus.

Just do like me, and get yourself a good Rogering. Snuggle up to the TV every weekend morning with a hot cup of joe, tune in, close your eyes, block out all the demons, and just let it happen. You’ll be glad you did.
