You guys know I’ve been in the dumps lately (just wrote my first piece in weeks- it was exhausting, had to crib it from the LA Times and ten minutes I heard Rush when I was driving to the soviet safeway).
I’ve had the blues, don’t know if it’s because I feel guilty about trying to protect my career over doing “good journalism” this past election or if it’s because of my sad. You guys know I’ve got seasonal affective disorder, right? Well, I found out that my stupid cleaning lady switched out the bulbs in my lightbox! I’ve been staring at flourescents for three weeks! WTF! No wonder nobody wants to pay social security taxes for these people! Besides who can live on nine grand a year?
Anywho, someonbe just sent me this!
I just want to say it is so cool of Danny to stick up for me and mention my name. (OT I have been named in 22 stories about the media in 2004, I’m piecing together an online scrapbook of al the times my name got into the papers- in 2003 it was only twice and those were just legal notices) He totally understands that people don’t go into journalism to be picked on and scrutinized. They go into to journalism to pick on and scrutinize. If you don’t like what I write tough nuts. The public is not my boss and it’s not Danny’s either. Hello!?! His job is to edit the public- that is his title PUBLIC EDITOR!
Anyhoo, thanks Danny and as far as this…….
“It was amazing to me that Adam [Nagourney, the Times’ national political reporter] and his colleagues can still keep their eyes on the ball(s).
Don’t worry bout that Honey! ROTFL
