Imprisonment, Famous Sister Pay Off For Laura LingS

Now-famous recently freed Current TV journalist Laura Ling and her already-famous-before sister Lisa Ling—who you know from your television set—have reportedly landed a book deal! Like we said, being kidnapped is the career move of a lifetime.

Sure, Laura Ling could have written her own book about her harrowing ordeal in a North Korean prison. But that would never make Oprah. Speakeasy reports:

Ms. Ling, together with her sister, Lisa Ling, a special correspondent for "The Oprah Winfrey Show," is offering a book that will examine the meaning of sisterhood and journalistic ideals. The issue of Laura Ling's captivity will be discussed, but in a larger context.

Fellow recently freed journo Euna Lee, who does not have a famous sister, can maybe write a book about dogs or something? People love dogs.
