    Another writer just dropped by and said, “I never thought I’d see the day: Dan Jenkins on Twitter.” I told him, “Bob, it’s a new world."

    Now all we need is Frank Deford, Curry Kirkpatrick, and Walter Iooss to start Twittering and we can truly recreate the magic that was SI in the 1970s, this time with nonsensical 140-character posts instead of takeout pieces.

    He has Bethpage listed among his "dullest Open courses." Birdbrain.

    This may get me to finally sign up. Because in his 140-characters, Jenkins can still produce something that will make you think.

    How do you Tweet on a geezer-codger portable Olivetti?

    I wish DJ could tweet this former thought of his:

    "Here's how I want the phony little conniving, no-talent, preppiewad asshole of an editor to die: I lace his decaf with Seconal and strap him down in such a way that his head is fastened to my desk and I thump him at cheery intervals with the carriage on my Olympia standard. I'm a stubborn guy who still works on a geezer-codger manual anyhow, so I write a paragraph I admire, the kind he likes to dick around with, especially if it's my lead, then I slip the carriage at him, and whack -- he gets it in the temple, sometimes the ear. Yeah, it would be slow, but death by typewriter is what the fuckhead deserves."
