And Korbel goes for $35

If I hadn’t worked there twice I wouldn’t be so suspicious, but who on the masthead do you think is the circus geek? I don’t know when I’ve last seen a small documentary lavished with such extensive coverage in a paper that apparently rates a Springsteen sold-out run beneath critical notice (H/T Altercation). Luckily, ours is one of the last four-rag towns, and the other hometown paper piped up to say it was all much ado about musty old rich people. No wonder the recession coverage is so schizo. It’s hard to sound authentic in down times when your theme song is “One of Us.”
