But Can He Imitate Paul Lynde?

Richmond Magazine devotes its Media Column this month to blogs and those who write them. Much fun is had by all.

That is, until we get to this quote from VCU professor Jeff South:

South said that Richmond Times-Dispatch writer Jeff Schapiro is a good example of a reporter who gives analysis in his columns and blogs without interfering with his hard news coverage.

"He tries to give his interpretation," South says. "His column is fact-based. When I read his blog, I get the same impression."

Rich Little should be so talented.

(Thanks Snoopy)

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
