#7499 Reporters like Bill Greider from the Washington Post and Him
Naughton of the New York Times, for instance, had to file long, detailed,
and relatively complex stories every day -- while my own deadline fell
every two weeks -- but neither of them ever seemed in a hurry about
getting their work done, and from time to time they would try to console
me about the terrible pressure I always seemed to be laboring under.
Any $100-an-hour psychiatrist could probably explain this problem
to me, in thirteen or fourteen sessions, but I don't have time for that.
No doubt it has something to do with a deep-seated personality defect, or
maybe a kink in whatever blood vessel leads into the pineal gland... On
the other hand, it might be something as simple & basically perverse as
whatever instinct it is that causes a jackrabbit to wait until the last
possible second to dart across the road in front of a speeding car.

#7503"The New York Times is read by the people who run the country. The

the country ..."
-- Robert J Woodhead
#7504The only qualities for real success in journalism are ratlike cunning, a
plausible manner and a little literary ability. The capacity to steal
other people's ideas and phrases ... is also invaluable.
-- Nicolas Tomalin, "Stop the Press, I Want to Get On"
#7505The world really isn't any worse. It's just that the news coverage
is so much better.
#7506 "Then you admit confirming not denying you ever said that?"
"NO! ... I mean Yes! WHAT?"
"I'll put `maybe.'"
-- Bloom County
#7507This is a test of the emergency broadcast system. Had there been an
actual emergency, then you would no longer be here.
#7508This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. If this had been an
