    Are we sure Robert G. Picard isn't really Dr. J. Evans Pritchard, Ph.D from Dead Poets Society, charting the importance of journalism on a graph in a textbook?

    This English dick needs his ass kicked.
    And that's all I'm going to say about him.

    At many places, that is true: Call up the day's budget, draw a few boxes, put a few headlines on, change a couple of commas, send a version to the web and typeset the page. But at better shops, the depth and breadth of information is respected and has meaning, and it has needed a group of trained and compensated professionals to produce. Now, if everyone becomes OK with 140-count messages passing as journalism, then I suppose the pay scale would be downsized accordingly.
