    He still gives his readers bang for their buck (and a quarter).


    I loved Nos. 1, 2, 21 and 23.

    Longtime Chad fan but, dadgummit, I can't get a question published. I'm itching to see if he pays that $1.25 by check or cash. I have no doubt he really does it.

    Outstanding column; when Chad is on, there isn't anyone funnier.

    I think Norm Chad is the funniest columnist around at the moment. Simmons is funny, but not as consistently.

    Years ago, Norman and I spent a couple of nights and mornings at a blackjack and craps table. The man is funny and can hold court with anyone.
    He has the most polished, self deprecating sense of humor of anyone I've ever met.

    Slouch is the man. The OJ question is gold.

    Norman Chad is a hero to deskers everywhere.

    A few years ago, Chad was trying to sell his column to other papers. His e-mail said "Pay me what you want or what you can afford." (Or something like that.)

    As a former sports editor at a tiny, tiny paper, I will say that he sends out those solicitations to damn near everybody and, had my paper been able to cough up money for non-wire columns such as his, I would have done it.

    Does nothing for me. I'd rather read Kornheiser any day (maybe because I never see him do football games).

    That was OK, I guess, but a couple of those items would have fit comfortably into the ESPN Magazine's old parody column, "If Larry King wrote for us."

    I read his column on the train back NYC back to Trenton two Mondays ago. Funny dude.
