    Has anyone caught "The Paper", a documentary film about the Penn St. student paper? I caught it on my local PBS this weekend.

    Some good parts, but a lot of typical college paper whining.

    Henry: I realize this doesn't exactly get us off on the right foot.
    Paul Bladden, New York Sentinel: The right foot, are you out of your mind? The offer is rescinded. How stupid do you think we are? What do you think I get when I put two and two together? Three? Three and a half?
    Henry: Look, I'm trying to be reasonable here, and just let me...
    Paul Bladden, New York Sentinel: Why don't you just take my wallet as well?
    Henry: Let me talk. Let me say something, wait a m...
    Paul Bladden, New York Sentinel: Well, I hope you're satisfied, asshole! You just blew your chance to cover the world!
    Henry: Really? Well guess fucking what? I don't really fucking care. You wanna know fucking why? Because I don't fucking live in the fucking world! I live in fucking New York City! So go fuck yourself!
    [Henry slams down telephone back on the receiver]
    Janet, Henry's Secretary: You handled that well.
    Henry: Thank you.

    Henry: What do you think I'm trying to do?. Look, I got news for you. I'm not locked up in the men's room with a cop because it's a good time. Frankly, I've had better times, okay? I'm here because I think the story is wrong. Is it? Is it? If you have something, give it to me now, but don't stand there and act coy and say "Fuck you", because, quite frankly, it's a waste of all of our time. And you know what? I don't have any more time. I have no more fucking time. I need it fucking today, I need it right now!

    We reek of opinions. What every columnist at this paper needs to do is to shut the fuck up!
