    Dude has more follicles in his eyebrows than I have on my head. It's a good look!

    For a serious anecdote, I covered the big City prep golf tournament today and at least four participants learned of their tee times in the local Mid-Major Paper.

    I asked the tourney chairman again, "The high school kids read the paper?"

    His argument seems to be that because of social networking, people don't read newspapers. Yet he begins that argument my saying that more people read newspapers than ever before.

    Man, I love Conrad Fink. :D

    That was crazy-old-man talk, but he's great. Never get tired of hearing him talk.

    Me too -- albeit for the one week I got to know him at a journalism conference.

    I do wonder if Fink has ever actually used Twitter for journalistic purposes? His perspective on the matter is rather outdated, and that's a shame considering there's a ton of journalism / "being plugged in" / going on in Twitter-verse.
