    An immensely talented young pup named Jay Schwab got this job. Keep his name in mind, you'll hear it a lot more in years to come.

    C'mon, isn't that line a little tired?

    Not as tired as yours was.

    Wow. The depth of wit astounds me.

    Why not "I'm rubber and you're glue?" or "I know you are, but what am I?"

    What I said is true, Jay is immensely talented and you will be hearing a lot from him. 

    BTW, a better line for Appgrad05 may have been "Let's hear it for Jay's mother everyone..."  (I'm neither Jay or his mother incidentally)

    I think what Dye was trying to say is, it seems unlikely someone would ever exhume a thread like this from the dead unless they were looking to do some self promotion.

    I bet.

    What? You got yourself a little weekly outdoors column of recycled briefs. Maybe a blog about fantasy baseball? Got to do a thrilling expose on the corruption of the local little league that won the area's Ju-Co writing award last year?

    I'd guess copy editor myself, after quietly being asked to give up on your writing aspirations and take over Monday slots and four round-up shifts. Few as douche-y as you last long in the public eye.

    At work, you silently mock the writers at your paper, thinking what a wonderful job you would have done on a given piece.

    Message boards give you the anonymous forum you desperately need to publicly denigrate a compliment given to someone other than yourself.

    I didn't exhume this post, and I know Jay had nothing to do with it.

    All I did was inform the board of who was hired and pass along a compliment, and Dye responded with the usual vitriol.
