It feels actually like a funny and intersting review and I saved it for I¹m
very interested by some of the stories...and will welcome any further
comments about any story mentioned by any Rara-Avians...since I have not
read any of those...
Of particular interest to me are the story of Vu-Tran...(which one is it?),
David Corbett¹s, Randy Rohn and Ron Carlson¹s (where does it take
place?)...and Kristin K¹s seems wacky enough...
How come though, such an interesting article, lies in a Murdoch rag like the
wealky stand-hard¹, where medieval though reigns supreme and is exemplified by managing editor¹ (i.e. Stasi enforcer) Claudia Henderson, who majored in it (medieval thought) at Berkeley...
Don¹t get alarmed...the Montois is not trying to start another wars of
words...but really...it is strange...and the beautiful bottle of Valréas,
Côtes-du-Rhônes Villages, Cuvée Prestige, 2007, that I am currently
decimating, has got my papilles¹ (taste buds¹ is a very very poor
translation and unfortunately the only word offered...), all worked up...
In any case, any info on these stories (or or any of the others, by
extension) will be most welcome...
PS: for those of you who might have touched both the journalism world and
the media/communications...¹ one...isn¹it true that managing editors¹ at
papers are a bit like production managers¹ in the production/film world:
primary function is to bitch, cut, reduce, slash, get-a-deal, underpay,
bastardize, cheapen...anything to save a quarter...I know the prod.film part
because I hired people who used to be like that and that was the criteria
and, it worked...!...but I¹m curious because several of my journalist/writer
friends sneer as heavily about managing editors¹ than we sneer at
production managers¹...Just curious...
