Sources: Katherine Lanpher still incredibly depressing

Katherine Lanpher's publicist has been working overtime, resulting in no less than two articles about the former Al Franken sidekick. From the Happy Side, we get "Moline native writes of her 'Leap'". It concentrates only on the good things that happened after she moved after she moved to NYC, as recounted in her book Leap Days: Chronicles of a Midlife Move.

Meanwhile, over in the Depressing as Ibsen or Something department, we get "Uprooting oneself is risky business":

"I couldn't get the pathos of it out of my mind -- what happens to people that they would ... put import on something that shallow?" she writes near the end of Leap Days. "And then I wondered if I had done the same thing by moving to New York, if I had upset a good life close to friends and family, endangered a career, just so I could say I had gone to a bigger market, had worked on a national show -- things that, in the end, weren't really so important."
