    I might print this, tape it up next to my computer, and use it as a guide for token quotes never to use.

    It's too bad everyone you interview says them.

    pointing out cliches is such a cliche. as pet peeves go, this ranks right up there with those idiots who go around at super bowl media day asking guys about the stupidest questions they've been asked at super bowl media day. don't try to make a living off pointing out how ridiculous your profession can be. you're above it. good for you. we get it.

    I loved it.
    A column should inform, entertain and provoke, and this did all three. Most columns I've read lately are so moronic they can't even meet one of the objectives. How refreshing to read a columnist that can both write and think.
