Channel 7 once had a weather girl, who stood behind a transparent map, 
with the camera reversed so that whatever she wrote was readable to the 
viewer.  Her other gimmick was that she was ambidextrous and had a chalk 
in each hand, now writing with one hand, now with the other.  Maybe 
someone else around here will remember her name.
