"People are finally coming around to the realization
that the web isn't about computers or technology.
It's about content. Good journalists do well
because they do good work, not because their
ideas are delivered with ink and cheap paper.

best people. They treated their employees poorly
for years, and now they will harvest a bitter crop."
--Robert Hood, MSNBC, on newspapers'
loss of staff to web competitors

Dennis Rodman will play a genius with a bullet lodged in his head - A lot
of people are getting a TV series now - Charlton Heston just signed to play
a bullet with some brain lodged on its head. (Bill Williams)
