Jane Pauley's pretty smile...!
21 May 2019 | by Samuel-1979See all my reviews

I believe the true beneficiaries of this episode were the CBS crew who enjoyed a week of free travel to Italy, free 5-stars hotels, free meals, transportation, good paycheck and all the extras, not to forget first class air travel perhaps most of them in private jets. No wonder Jane Pauley smiles so pretty and so often.

As far as the scenery and arts, well...nice but thinking average American worker who is a paycheck away from personal bankruptcy would ever get a chance to sip a glass of Sting's many wine's or be able to stay in some moron's B&B in Tuscany with his wife, or have a chance to stroll through those multi-million dollar villas, well...dream on pal. It is not going to happen.

So the show is basically made for the people who all they can do is to see how the people who are a lot better off than them enjoy their time and do the things we working mortals will never, ever, be able to do, see, and enjoy. That is nice.

I am not jealous of anyone who affords to do and see all those things but while watching it, I was thinking of my thirty-something daughter, a middle school writing teacher with a masters degree, and mother 3 who had to live 3 months without pay because of the birth of her child. Lesotho, Liberia, Papua New Guinea and Swaziland and the good ol' USA is among a handful of countries in the entire world who do not feel families on maternity leave deserve any compensation. At least the school system here in Illinois does not...! So excuse me if I am not all that thrilled by the splendor of the Florence as depicted by the CBS Sunday morning, and let me tell you something, talking with a few co-workers, I am not alone. Oh well, that little cup of exquisite Espresso could not be more than 10-15 bucks...I may afford that.
