Groucho is rolling in his grave
John Marx, who pens tepid pieces for the Dispatch/Argus featuring what I guess is humor apparently aimed at those who find the comic strip "Nancy" hilarious, today did his thing on his experience getting stuck in a traffic jam waiting for Dick "Dick" Cheney's motorcade to pass.
Needless to say, he went to Cheney's hunting incident for material no fewer than 10 times by my count.
The only thing worse than that overkill was that he didn't even know the facts about the incident he mined so heavily for comedy gold.
What's neat about my world is that if I'm covering a big shot -- and Vice President Dick Cheney, aka The Great White Hunter for his ability to shoot a hunting partner in the bee-hind, is a big shot -- I never get stuck in a big-shot roadblock.No, what's neat about your world, John, is that you don't have to know what you're talking about. (and neither apparently, do your editors)
Granted, Marx couldn't be confused with a reporter, and he aims to please the "average guy" demographic, but shouldn't he at least know simple facts that the average guy (or young kid) knows, such as that Cheney shot an attorney in the face, not the "bee-hind"?
The D/A's Wundrum wanna-be has a ways to go.
