"Hey Mike, since yr on a media-commentary kick:
Sam Z and Randy Michaels (betcha those two Manly Men would guffaw right along at those open-carry fashion faux pas jokes...good stuff). Alas...Trib Co. problems are a little too close to home, izzit? Sooo much easier to flick a lazy booger at NPR.
Too bad. 'Cause enquiring minds encounter the arguments of folks like McChesney and Nichols (http://fora.tv/2010/08/10/John_Nichols_The_Death_and_Life_of_American_Journalism) and can't help but wonder what a rich and consequential vein of discussion, analysis and debate you have in this subject. And there's zero chance the collapsing of the 'print media' business model isn't front and center in the minds of newspaper columnists-cum-bloggers like yourself."
