We're lookin' for a phone

Posted By on Thu, Jul 2, 2009 at 2:42 PM

This is a TV ad for an example of one of the hotter things on the web of late, information services. Call a new text service, KGB, with a text message question -- the score of the 1947 Cotton Bowl, quantum physics, the highest paid lottery staff in America, etc. -- and you'll get an answer texted back from an on-line expert for 99 cents. just dial kgbkgb (542542)

Anyway, I give them the plug because the ad answers a question about weird college mascots by invoking the University of Arkansas at Monticello's proud Boll Weevil.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
