A cold-ravaged editorial staff gamely approach the keyboard to report Monz' lunch:
Lunch is a monzmade turkey sandwich (blend of normal and buffalo) on WG bread, with carrots, apple, and some string-cheese. Yum.

And give a glimpse of their suffering dimentia. Years ago the EIC watched an episode of "VIP" -- a Pamela Sue Anderson vehicle where she played a valley girl named "Valerie Irons" who agrees to front a Beverely Hills detective agency ("Valerie Irons Protection") after being assured she won't be in danger. Wacky, and dangerous, hijinks ensue. At least, the EIC --thinks-- he watched such an episode, and for years he's had a line from the show rattling around his brain: "There's only room for one computer geek in this town!" Two weeks ago the first season of the show was released on DVD and the EIC, using his Netflix (tm) subscription, ordered it up to check his memory. And there is indeed a line very close to this which appears in the very last episode, which guest starred Ice-T (who does not play a computer geek).

Legendary "SuperJock" Larry Lujack and his sidekick, "Snotnose" Little Tommy, are the morning team (along with some woman I've never heard of) on a local Chicago AM oldies station. What's frightening is that they sound exactly the same as they did 35 years ago. Listen for yourself.
the editors will be back to their razor-sharp, blog visiting, blog commenting, cogent observing selves later in life.
