Watching NBC News with my mother tonight, one story about shopping on Black Friday was presented by a reporter named Maggie Vespa.

I don't remember seeing anyone with the last name Vespa.

Could it be her real name?

No scooter.

She was doing the normal talking head routine, standing and talking with something pretty or interesting in the background.

She is the first non scooter Vespa I have encountered.

Maybe she hails from Italy.

Umm…I didn't ask.

I did Google her and found that she appears to be from exotic Peoria, Illinois.


Google even had a photo.

She's from Illinois, but just left us here in Portland, Oregon to return home for a great job. It always made my day seeing her on the news....

When I was young we used to have Tricia Toyota on the Channel 4 news. Not really pertinent, but neither am I.

When I lived in Portland, it was not uncommon to see her in various neighborhoods working on location. I bumped into her more than once on Mississippi.

If I buy another Vespa, and I do need a new one as Rocket, Razzo and Vanessa are all over fifteen years old, I will name it Maggie.
