"Ha ha! Your medium is dying!"

    Really? Nobody's posted this? Nobody watches anymore? Have Buck and the Seinfeld loosers taken over in my absence? For shame!


    "Nelson, there's being right and there's being nice." Ouch, man.

    I alluded to it on another thread. It was too raw a wound for me to start its own thread.

    But thanks for the salt pouring.

    When you click to the home page of Pegasus News, the lead story -- the most interesting news in the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area today, according to them -- is seven paragraphs about a chef leaving a group of restaurants where, apparently, what they cook best is pizza.

    If print is dying, I doubt Pegasus News will be able to legitimately claim much of a role in killing it. In fact, I bet they die faster. Haha!
  4. I thought there would be a thread as well. I couldn't stop laughing.

    Nelson's a big jerk.

    I was watching it with my kids and -- while I thought the line was funny -- I was a bit embarrassed. If I were 9 and thought my dad had a job that might not be there in a few years, I'd be worried.

    Almost as funny as Nelson's line was the contempt the host of the debate had for the WaPo guy.

    Awesome, awesome line. Rewound it four times and laughed just as hard every time.

    Exactly. He sounded all fired up to have the guy from Slate.com and the woman from CNN and really bitter to have to hear what someone from the Washington Post would have to say.

    Another great line was when the guy walked into Moe's Tavern and asked if he could connect to the internet and Moe sets him and then says, "I love you newsies because you lap up the sauce." I figured that fit my life and about half this board's lives.
