So much bashing of the news industry these days. There are still good guys out there, though. Here's my friend the Monkey Woman with one of them, in fact: Pat Kiernan of NY1, the local news anchor on the best damn 24/7 cable news channel there is. Pat once vanity-Googled himself, found a post on my old blog, and wrote me a nice, funny e-mail. I'm not a celebrity-worshipper, but I admit I was star-struck. Nobobdy makes smart-ass remarks about the day's headlines quite like Pat.
The MW, meanwhile, has just conquered the NY Marathon and is on a road trip to Graceland and the Redneck Riviera, promises to bring back Elvis memorabilia. She's also a member of the Polar Bear Club.
