Well, maybe next year Bob Caudle can give me one of his Jackass of the year Awards

A few days ago I took Bob Caudle of the Northwest Arkansas Times to task when he wrote, in the midst of his Jackass of the Year column:

Forget it? It’s over? Nothing is over until WE say it’s over. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? No. And it’s not over now. Nutt leaving for Mississippi raised the cumulative IQ in both states.

I then added:

Okay. Sure, Bob. Not sure it raised the raised the IQ at the NWA Times, if both you and the proofreader actually think the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.

Thanks to all the readers to much more sharp-witted than I was that morning, I now remember Bob was using a line from Animal House.

Animal House! How could I have missed that?

Idiot!

It could have been worse, I suppose. I could have missed a line from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Still, this is pretty bad.

Silly Drake. I’ll be donning the famous religious garb, the Shroud of Chagrin, for the next few days. .

Press Release Journalism and Community Access Television

I read with great interest the article in the NWA Times about the current issues at C.A.T., which focused exclusively on comments on people in positions of “authority.”

Board members.

City officials.

C.A.T. Manager.

What was  missing was the fact the current board of directors of C.A.T. has been under fierce criticism from a number of producers lately, and that criticism has seen its way onto the channel itself, in terms of a program that one of the producers has created.

Nowhere in the article was mention made that Colleen Pancake, before her resignation as C.A.T. board president, was heard on camera issuing instructions to turn off the camera at a public meeting.

There is a growing feeling of distrust between a number of long-time producers and the current board. How hard would this have been to find out, if the reporter had thought to ask beyond the folks at the top of the food chain.

Well, I guess if you want an article done right, you have to do it yourself . . .

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.
