Nightly frightly news

Ok, the news wasn't scary but watching it certainly was.
We tuned in at dinner to The Nightly News with Brian Williams when a fire alarm went off, and not one in the house but in the offices of NBC News. Hats off to Mr. Williams for the professionalism to mostly deliver the news straight-faced without any irritation while a booming alarm sounded in the background. It stopped a couple of times, enough to keep us watching. It was irritating, but I kept watching to see how he handled it.
And he handled it gracefully. And he reminded viewers it was them, not us, who was beeping. Initially, my family wondered what was going on.
