    Good ol' Sid represents almost everything that I don't ever want to become while I'm still in this business.

    Is he really as beloved by the people in Minny as he thinks he is? Every time something like this comes up, every time someone calls him on something, his response is always the same: People love me, I am awesome, so I will do whatever the fuck I want. Screw you, I am not sorry.

    Sid's been a douchebag from the word go.

    The old bastard should retire.

    That's my favorite part of the story.

    "We are what we seem to be," some philosopher wrote. Hartman seems like a total ass.

    In other news, the Tribune Co. owns the Cubs.

    If you wanna go after Hartman, go after him. This article is just dumb.

    I'm happy to clear this up: There's a double standard.

    Glad I could help.

    Yes. Girlfriend and her parents just moved from Minnesota a couple of years ago and they absolutely worship him. In their eyes, he can do nothing wrong. We were watching the Glen Mason press conference online and they got all excited upon hearing him ask a question and then seeing him chase the AD out of the room after the conference was over.

    Oh, and they keep telling me to read his Minnesota sports history book as well too. Not saying that I'm not interested, as I am, but that says something right there about their view of him and his view of his city.

    He is a beloved icon...

    He's also everything that is wrong about journalism...
