Ed's Update: Well, uh, hmmm... So now I guess now I know something 'bout using digg. The above quote, in case you didn't click on the "read more | digg story" links is by James Wolcott. I did the digg, and then clicked "blog", but wasn't aware that it would post to Silly Humans since my PC slowed down and needed a rebooting. I never got the standard Blogger email saying I'd posted on here, so - honestly James & V-Fair, I'd have clarified whose quote that is and a little context for it.
I hope y'all managed to figure it out and clicked over to read the rest of the Walcott piece. He starts post out with his take on Rosie O's leaving The View, something I wouldn't have given much thought to as I never watch that program, but dude can make just about any topic interesting, IMO.
Live and learn, eh...
