Now what CBS News really needs is for Katie Couric to get knocked up in a three-way sex scandal

Poor Lara Logan. A girl can work a decade to overcome the label of 34D Lara the South African sex kitten, she can spend four years in Iraq dodging bombs and proving that female war correspondents don't have to look like Christiane Amanpour, and she can make it all the way to 60 Minutes, but when a girl's hot and under fire and surrounded by all those testosterone-charged guys in a warzone, a girl can't help it.

Especially not a girl who tells the New York Times that when she arrived in Pakistan for an exclusive interview with president Pervez Musharraf, "her suitcase with bikinis and other beachwear made it to Islamabad; the suitcase with the rest of her clothes did not."

Hey, most network correspondents and producers act like they're in a warzone and sex it up behind the scenes when they're on the road covering events like candidates' debates. The only criticism of lovely Lara we can think of is that she didn't use protection. You can never tell where those CNN boys have been, and bulletproof vests can only do so much...

But Sean, take advantage! Make her the anchor!
