    No other way he could possible say this:

    In other news, John Walsh of ESPN would not describe any section of his site as "sports related."

    In a related development, the Holy Tebow said water wasn't wet.

    Wow. This guy is in for a rude awakening when he ACTUALLY does look at his own website.

    Wow. It says the founder of Craigslist, Craig Newmark, still works at the firm as a customer service representative.

    WTF?

    Apparently the dude still runs the whole thing out of his house, with a big bank of servers. It's purposely low-tech. I guess the guy has been offered over a billion -- BILLION -- dollars for ad rights but won't do it.

    Rich entrepreneur types are not like us. Which is often how they got that way.

    Really? How do you get that way if you don't take the BILLION?

    I think what they mean was instead of grabbing the big bucks, entrepreneurs take a more steady approach.

    Perhaps. But I would think that by taking the billion, you've reached the summit. No?
