How Do You Say "Perky" in Farsi?

The suits at the CBS Evening News are determined to solve their ratings woes one way or another:

One year after Couric jumped from NBC’s “Today” to CBS in a big-money talent deal, the “Evening News” anchor is embarking on a high-risk tour of Iraq and Syria to revive the broadcast…

…The Pentagon has advised CBS News to keep details of Couric’s itinerary vague, but she will co-anchor “Evening News” live from both Iraq and Syria next week after several days spent reporting in the field.

CBS News complied with the Pentagon’s request to keep Katie’s itinerary vague, saying only that “Katie will be staying at the Babylon Hotel, about ten miles from downtown Baghdad on the banks of the Tigris, in room 332.”
