    I bet Whitlock believes that he did the damn thang with that one.

    The DL ("The U Can Doooo Nooo Wronnnnnnggggg") B reference as a pillar was and remains hilarious.

    Is this part still relevant?

    The newspaper industry is being driven by fear. The market place of ideas has disappeared. There are no jobs. People have mortgages to pay and kids in need of daycare or college. Everyone just tries to avoid conflict and avoid the next round of layoffs.

    I don't often agree with Whitlock but he nailed that column. A great read.

    Over a year later, I realized that Whitlock spelled "Titanic" wrong:

    "APSE and its myth-building contest bait newspaper leadership to stay stagnant. Presenting Albom an award and giving him a platform to preach was the equivalent of the band playing while the Titantic took on water."

    Ouch.
