Something Frivolous To Read When You're Done Bitch-Slapping Me Over Global Warming
Six Questions asked by Cecile DuBois, and answered by Amy Alkon, intelli-bimbo -- my new name for myself this week. Cecile is only 14, but she's been accused (on Luke Ford's site) of being something along the lines of a "dissolute 46-year-old LA Times writer" -- quite a compliment, I think, if you omit the LA Times part.

I'd take it an honor to work for the LAT as long as I was the editor and if I revolutionized it into being as good as the LA Examiner. In other words, if I got to work there, I'd take over and fire all their bad writers and hire all LA Bloggers to take over.

Hey Amy --

That line about how "having written" is better than "writing"? It's not Fran Lebowitz. It's 100% Lena Cuisina.

An invoice is in the mail.

Actually, it's my other favorite misanthrope, Dorothy Parker. I could again be mistaken, but perhaps she was responsible for one of my other faves -- approximately, "If you don't have anything nice to say, come sit next to me." It may have been Alice Roosevelt-Longworth. I can't look it up, as my deadline has seized me by the neck and won't let me go...not even for a mini-google.

It's a shame we didn't think to run Cecile for governor, but I'd settle for her editing the LA Times.
