See where a love of reading can get you? Jenna Hager, a rookie reading instructor with the city schools, has been hired by the Today show as a reporter. The Federal Hill resident will contribute stories about once a month on topics such as education.

Isn't it great that a prominent TV show would reach out to an altruistic young woman working to help kids read?

Oh, wait, someone just told me that Ms. Hager also is known as Jenna Bush, a former First Daughter.

So NBC was more interested in ratings than getting kids to read -- and turn off their TV sets? I'm aghast.
