    I'll be honest here. "Barry's World" stinks. Bad.

    This thread is not ending well. That's unfortunate.

    So what? This isn't a moment that requires a ground-breaking headline. You are just trying to capture the history of the moment. That is why the number 756 is a quick, easy and effective way of communicating what happened. And I'd wager not as many people as you think are going to include the *.

    *If* I were working tonight (I'm not) *and* we'd be able to get it in (we wouldn't), I'd probably go with something like Standing Alone. I'd have to give it more thought and be in a work frame of mind, so that's off the top of my head.

    Ha! Jerry bitches about people ripping his idea after he rips the hell out of everyone else's. Good stuff.
