A famous quote from Gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson goes something like this:   The TV business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs for no good reason. There’s also a negative side. This quote used to hang on […]

Lately I find myself thinking about Noah. Actually, the Noah from an old comedy routine where Bill Cosby imagines how the conversation between Noah and The LORD might have gone: “NOAH,” says the LORD, “I want you to build an ARK.” “Right.” says Noah, “What’s an Ark?” “Get some wood, build it 300 cubits, by 80 […]
