    Mark Whicker wonders what all the fuss is about, except this is worse than what Whicker wrote.

    This guy appears to be the editor, too, for those wondering how the hell something like this gets published.

    Worse than the Jaycee Dugard column? Oh, I dunno. That's the most lemonheaded idea I've ever seen.

    The editor's note tacked on the top really doesn't help.

    Why are columns still written in a world where anyone can go online and offer their own opinion on -anything- ... and probably get the same number of eyeballs

    There once was an old guy who wrote a weekly column at a place I worked who used a column mug with him talking on the phone. We made fun of it every time his column appeared.

    Because there are still columnists out there talented enough for people to be interested in what he or she has to say. This guy isn't one of those columnists.

    Editor's note: "...It was meant to be funny..."
    If you need to spell that out up front...
