NBC Today show: How to poach an egg (no, it didn't lay the egg; Wall Street did)

Today, NBC’s Today Show taught us how to poach an egg.  Honest to God!  A cook dropped the raw egg (out of the shell) into a swirling vortex of boiling water, so that the yolk stays soft while the white hardens slightly.

Then he served the Eggs Benedict without Canadian bacon, but various fruits and spices. But you can't say that this meal comports with Gabe Mirkin's extreme low-fat diet. 

I can remember back in the 1950s there was a black and white cooking show called “Homemaker’s Exchange.”
