The popular public affairs show on The NET, “In the Arena” is back on the air, returning for a second season.
And once again the star attractions (from the WWF, it seems) are Elizabeth “The Anchoress” Scalia and Grant “Commonweal” Gallicho. The ringmaster is Jane “Stay Classy” Hanson (formerly of WNBC TV here in New York), while color commentary is provided by Msgr. Kieran “The Collar” Harrington, Vicar of Communications for the Diocese of Brooklyn (and, not insignificantly, my boss.)
The first episode of the season ranged all over the map, from Obama to Tiger to ashes and beyond. It was lively, and sometimes contentious — and I know fans of The A will want to see her in action.
