Mr. and Mrs. Smith

In the universe of local power couples, it doesn't get bigger than Rex Smith and Marion Roach. You all know Rex, he's the editor of that newspaper ---but as is so often the case, his better half may really may be his better half. You be the judge:

She: NPR commentator
He: Weekly gig with Alan and Lydia.

She: Writes books.
He: Writes about the weary world of newspaper editing.

She: Worked for the New York Times.
He: Worked for Newsday.

She: Flaming redhead.
He: Unruly eyebrows rivaling those of one Mr. Frank Ames of Saranac, NY.

Wow...It's like Heartburn, without all the booze and stuff, of course.
