O'Reilly sparks journalistic intensity, but I wouldn't mind seeing his
ass run out of town. I really, really value honesty and integrity in
journalism over panache. I move from Time to Newsweek to US News & World
Report searching for journalism without an axe to grind. Boring? Maybe.
But there's something to be said for non-biased reporting.

Why should we care? WHY should we care? B.D., we HAVE TO care. 

After all, M.B. Howard was the prototypical new age journalist. Not just

another tattered, pants-pissing newspaper reporter warming a barstool in
Denver Press Club, but a cutting edge (that'd be the edge of a
single-edge razor 
blade, of course) coke dust Hoover who sparked journalistic intensity
jangled nerves and $1,000-a-day habit, rather than a foggy, old-school
rage fueled 
by a three-boilermaker lunch.

And to think we ran his sorry ass out of town. How shortsighted could we
been?  : )

And we care about the former editor of the Rocky Mountain News, why? ;-)

>>Chris Lawson takes a wild guess: 

Let me guess. Would that be Michael Balf Howard, former Rocky Mountain
News (Denver) editor-in-chief and cocaine addict who slithered out of
town in shame? 

No, I didn't think so.
