Inside Washington announced at the end of tonight's show that its next episode will be its last. Washington, DC based newscaster Gordon Peterson has been the host for 25 years, and it had moved from venue to venue as Peterson had moved from station to station.
Inside Washington is the continuation of Agronsky and Company, which began in the 1969 and was hosted by Martin Agronsky. It originally featured George Will, Hugh Sidney, Peter Lisagor, Carl Rowan, Elizabeth Drew and my sister's late father in law, James J. Kilpatrick (Kilpatrick claims he never saw Dan Akroyd's imitation of him, but he did once say "Jane you ignorant slut" just to appease some friends). The current cast of regulars includes Mark Shields, Nina Totenberg, Charles Krauthammer, Colbert King and most frequent replacement guest Evan Thomas. Too bad for me. Inside Washington was my only Must-See-TV show. And too bad for the cause of civil discourse.
