    Hey, I'm trying to behave... :)

    I actually started a thread a few months back about how I picked up a copy of the TU that I found in another airport and I was pleasantly surprised with what I saw. Granted, it was Masters week, but their coverage was impressive... Of course it was also a section without a Frenette column...

    Hopefully they're smart enough to offer the job to Tom Reed.

    Mizzougrad---what's your beef with Frenette? I happen to think he's a solid columnist and interesting to read. Better than your hotshots, your "up and comers," who are creative at plagiarizing somebody else's work but doing just enough to get by without legal problem, or writing a good column one day and a piece of crap two days later. But if that's your cup of tea, whatever.

    By the way, I suppose you think being a mizzou grad---assuming you are one---somehow makes you God's gift to journalism. Now that's good for a laugh. Most Mizzou grads I've met or read are living off a reputation of how great a journalism school Mizzou has, and that reputation is so '70s and '80s. What journalism program you come out of no longer means squat. Some of your best writers out there today went to Podunk U. and might not have gotten where they are had they instead graduated Mizzou with their nose stuck up in the air and living off of alumni connections.

    By the way, when you write your next great column, please post a copy here. Seriously. I can't wait to read it and feel the chills up and down my spine.

    I will agree with the suckiness of Jacksonville though. However they have some of the most defensive residents on earth.

    Akron is working every imagineable angle to get Tom Reed back within a month. They won't lose him to Jacksonville. Tom's an Ohioan.

    So are 90 percent of the people who live in Florida.

    I didn't think they were allowed to live that far away from Ohio Stadium ... or is it OK just to pray in its general direction?

    And nobody is as bad as Mizzou makes Frenette sound. The guy falls into the 90 percent just like most of us. There's 5 percent on either side who are either brilliant or suck ass so badly that it's a huge success when they wipe their own asses without messing it up. Then there's the other 90 percent.

    I did laugh at this, but it's not that funny since Reed and 39 others were laid off. They won't hire for his position.

    Reed is interviewing here though.

    This job has already been turned down once... It was by a very, very big name veteran writer...
