    Apparently, the secret to success in the newspaper business is...what's that?


    This pretty much has to go under the heading of "a pleasant surprise."


    I don't know whether to be happy that PhDs have backed up this simple and obvious fact, or to be sad that PhDs had to back up this simple and obvious fact.

    I just e-mailed that link to my ME. If I get canned, I'm blaming you. ;)
