I can't wait for the Olympics. When they begin, this links gig will slow down.

I don't watch the news much. I'm more into reading online or in print. No, I'm not 90. Anyway, I really enjoy TV news getting owned for being incredibly formulaic. (You can say the same thing about print what with the inverted pyramid and things like that, but I argue you have more creativity in your copy in print than TV.) Enjoy.
