n this paragraph. 1) It's not the "paucity of ombudsmen" that "make" me criticize them. It's the robots who control my arms. Or maybe, I just write what I feel like writing. 2) It's just not true that I haven't "ever been exposed" to the "labyrinthine newsrooms of America." I've even got the pictures to prove it!

So, if you make it to the center of the labyrinthine newsroom, do you get to take on the Minataur for a chance to become the editor?

Make that Minotaur, with an "O." Agh, I'd be slayed by that horned protector of the public's trust in mere seconds.

This is worse than Pamplona.

I'm beginning to think you look like Roy Orbison. Check your picture 12 against those on this page;


Agree, or do we need an ombudsmen?

My initial read was that the "one" he was accusing you of never having "been exposed to" was an ombudsman.

But the writing is sufficiently sloppy that either interpretation is perfectly valid.

Are you sure it's robots controlling your arms, and not cyborg mice?

Do they have laser eyes? (If you've kept up with my blog, you know what I'm talking about. If not, well, that's just a pity, then, isn't it?)
