Picture of Lilly
Early readers of this site may remember my lamenting the loss of a certain reporter last December. Well, HE'S BACK!...if only for a day or two. Erik Liljegren, the man with the most misspelled name in the news business, has spent the past year traversing the country as a Fox News Channel correspondent. From the Michael Jackson trial in L.A. to Katrina-ravaged Mississippi, Lilly has flashed his pearly whites in every time-zone in the contiguous U.S. Now, he's back in the Piedmont on 'special assignment' (a phrase that sounds a whole lot sexier when it means something other than counting pick-up trucks on I-40). Last night he took time from his allegedly busy schedule to break bread with a group of ex-colleagues who still don't give him any respect, even though he's the epitome of a class act. More cognac!
