    You should have stopped whilst you were ahead ...
  6. Why? I'm a roll now:

    Oh Omaha,
    you never looked so good.

    I am leaving.
    I'm sailing away.
    My time in Iowa was just a holiday.
    I've gotta get back over that bridge
    to the town were I live-
    I guess that's where I'll stay.

    I was thinking Lubbock. We'll be breaking out in a chorus of Mac Davis...

    (For those of you not into 1980s country, the reference is "Happiness is Lubbock in my rearview mirror". ;D)

    And later revived and paraphrased as a mid-90s quote around ESPN Plaza, according to the book.

    I don't know the current situation but I've heard good things about the sports operation there (the good words were from a few years ago).

    Oggiedoggie: Macho Business Donkey Wrestler

    For non-Newsradio fans, or non-former colleagues of mine in OKC, the above post is an homage to the time-honored tradition of using Altavista's online translation software to translate things into Japanese and back into English. Just take your favorite columnist and run his or her latest through such a translation. It's hours of fun for the whole family. An Oggiedoggie suspect list is being compiled.


    Oh, also, and I believe this is the first time this has been mentioned on this thread, there's a sports designer/copy editor opening at the Omaha World-Herald, the employee-owned, 280,000-circulation daily in Omaha, Nebraska.

    We have a brand-new sports editor, Thad Livingston, a brand new deputy sports editor, and we're moving into a brand-new office building this fall. We have Nebraska football and the College World Series. We have a metro area of one million, and we have Warren Buffett. We give designers time to plan and copy editors time to be editors. (We also have giant red mastheads, but unlike Herpes and much like love, they are not forever.) Interested applicants should contact AME/Recruiting Jeff Carney at jeff.carney@owh.com, or me via PM or e-mail at josh.crutchmer@owh.com.
