Missing Something?

Filed under: — site admin @ 7:52 PM GMT-0500

In a long post on Eason Jordan’s resignation, Captain Ed of Captain’s Quarters has a sarcastic remark on the widespread evasion of responsibility for network screwups:

Maybe no one is in charge of news organizations at all; people like Andrew Heyward, Dan Rather, Jordan, and Cramer just sit around their offices and the news holistically appears on your television screens.

In fact, this is entirely correct, if we insert (‘interpolate’) a single syllable before ‘holistically’. The missing syllable is of course ‘ass’. (Sorry if this post is a bit crude: I’ve always hated the word holistic.)


  1. Well, Dr. W., you were always a tad narrow-minded, but this 3-column layout is amazing!

  2. I thought I saw something earlier this am about how Eason Jordan and Sharon Stone were an item. She was also in Davos. Do you think his whole motivation for what he said was to impress her rather than to curry favor with the Euroweenies?
