  1. This sounds terrible. I'm so sorry to hear this. I'd starve if I were in sales. Is this a punishment for you or a reward? I can't tell
  2. The tolls on the Mass Pike are temporary...and have been for something like 60 years
  3. Maybe just tell it that way next time... I never tell true stories
  4. You didn't do the fake-gay come-on thing? Disappointing, Deep. Disappointing
  5. I have a cousin who lives there. I think it costs something like $10 round trip to get there from Midlothian
  6. So does I-90, the Mass Pike here, a toll highway. Goes from Logan Airport to Seattle and the Pacific
  7. Morgantown is the best. The. Best. Will definitely be back in 2014. My OU experience was from 1993. I don't know much has changed. My Bulgarian friend nearly gave some dude from Maryland a beat down. I had to pull him away. Very stressful
  8. I don't know that Larry's Country diner is either kitschy or cool, but I do enjoy it. It might be the least cool show on TV
  9. I agree with this 100 percent. The money for good journalism is disappearing for a variety of reasons, but it's a negative trend overall
  10. They won't exist 10 years from now. Many will go out of print and online only within the next five. We're seeing this in b-to-b now. Our print mags are some of the last left in the industry, and we're phasing them out slowly
  11. I think you're looking at this from an editorial perspective, and I understand that. It's certainly possible from that perspective to justify putting this guy on the cover of the magazine. For me, it's the broader perspective that's more important. People see Rolling Stone and think rock stars and the "in" people of popular culture. That, to me, is what the cover conveys and has for years, and I think it's inappropriate for this terrorist to occupy that spot. I think the Manson thing was a bad decision, too, 40-something years ago. Same idea. Again, it's a great spread for the opening of the feature. The cover is the wrong place
  12. I feel ya, brother. Same here. Great show. That Nadine is a hoot
  13. Worst fans in my experiences (mostly from long ago): OU and Maryland (yes, really, a bunch of assholes at a BC game). Maybe Ohio State at a Kickoff Classic some years ago, too. They were pretty disgusting. Miami was the opponent and had great fans. (And I believe Miami won.) I hate Aggie culture with a passion, but their fans were always pretty friendly to me one-on-one. Same goes with the UT crowd. The OU fans I encountered in FW were just disgusting human beings. I remember Tech fans being great, but I'm going back to SWC days here. I have no idea what Maryland's problem was
  14. But Time didn't do it. That's the point. Rolling Stone, a magazine that has run rock heroes on covers for decades, did. The NYT used the photo in a much more sterile setting and gave it a different context with the headline. Besides, we see criminals and terrorists on the front page of a (daily) newspaper all the time. Not so a monthly journal of popular culture that considers itself a taste maker. For many years (probably not so much anymore), bands "made it" when they got the cover of Rolling Stone, hence the Dr. Hook song. The message is that this guy has "made it" somehow in pop culture. That's my objection
