Diane Sawyer: Simply exhausted?

There's been some buzz about Diane Sawyer seeming drunk on election night. Conan O'Brien did a terrific compilation of others who have appeared drunk on air.

My spin: She was simply exhausted. It does weird things to your brain, especially the older you are.

I know this firsthand. In my sabbatical fall at Rush University Medical Center in the chaplaincy program, we are oncall for 24 hours every seven to nine days. Often, we get just about an hour's sleep, depending on the need during the night. The next day, we usually are in class until noon. The folks coming off call, me included, are often a little loopy.

So Diane, get some sleep! You deserve it.
