Why is everyone so incredulous that this man is a journalist?  Is there some
minimum standard that people are held to before they can write for a newspaper? 
(If so, I would recommend that it be 'upgraded' to remove the bottom feeders
that have become prevalent in our media of late.)  Lord knows, if I wanted to
sit around and spout off my opinions all day without concern for reality I would
try to become a newspaper columnist.  Leave the guy alone - remember Bruce's
admonishment regarding fights with idiots.
