Andrew Breitbart, barrier-busting media critic - Washington Post (blog)

Tue, Mar 6, 2012
Breitbart’s allegations. “I can’t remember if I was in the ballroom at CPAC when he said it — I think maybe I had stepped into the hallway when it actually happened,” writes Zernike via e-mail. “But needless to say, I’d disagree with his assertion that I’m the most despicable person alive, or whatever it was he said.” And Leonnig suggests that the mainstream media serves more than one purpose for a guy like Breitbart: “Like the happy warrior he was, Andrew emphasized what he wanted to emphasize about our conversation to try to show a liberal mainstream media at work. In reporting, you get used to that. Later, his website enjoyed a real heyday with the exclusive reporting that I and my partner Joe Stephens did on the Obama administration’s flawed decisions in funding solar startup Solyndra.” Leonnig also notes: “To his credit, he never declined an interview.” The Internet bears testament to the guy’s media-friendliness. Though he died far too young, he claimed a lifetime’s share of bandwidth. If there was a camera available, there was Breitbart, taking all questions and free-associating himself into monologue territory. Jeremy Peters of the New York Times reported that he “passes along his personal e-mail address to almost anyone who asks.” His frequent appearances on cable networks plus his Web site properties, featuring Big Government, Big Journalism and Big Hollywood, made him perhaps the most successful member-cum-critic of the mainstream media. One of Zernike’s own recollections reflects just how quickly Breitbart could change hats: “I had seen him only once before, at the Tea Party convention in Nashville in February 2010, before he was about to take the stage to introduce Sarah Palin. He was hanging around the risers in back where the cameras were set up, with a glass of wine in his hand, joking around with some of the reporters. I didn’t realize who he was. I thought he was just another reporter, then suddenly he was onstage delivering this fiery anti-media speech.” Pity the obituary writers, who have to sort through Breitbart’s various roles and, in some cases, his contempt for their own media outlets. William McDonald, the obituaries editor of the New York Times, says that “if Breitbart had an ax to grind with the New York Times, which I’m sure he did,” that consideration wouldn’t necessarily figure in the obit coverage “unless it became a news event.” And just what qualifies as a news event these days is anyone’s guess. Andrew Meacham, a reporter at the Tampa Bay Times who does obituaries, voices the sentiment that many of Breitbart’s targets in the mainstream media must feel: “The conundrum about him, just having seen him on television, is that I can’t figure out if he was really a committed ideologue who was also trying to make a name for himself, or if he was largely having fun by creating this character, and in the course of doing that, sometimes got carried away with himself.” ...

Billy Strange dies at 81; guitarist, arranger for Presley, Nancy Sinatra - Los Angeles Times

Sun, Feb 26, 2012
Amsterdam DJ Junkie XL. "I lost a dear friend when Elvis died. I couldn't bring myself to go to the funeral of one who expired so needlessly and tragically." Strange's path intersected with that of another 20th century pop music titan when he and songwriter-producer Lee Hazlewood were auditioning songs with Nancy Sinatra for her debut album. "Lee and Billy came over and Lee was picking some things on the guitar, and I said, 'I like the one about the boots,' " Nancy told Larry King in 2002. "My dad, when he was leaving, he said, 'You're right. It's the one about the boots.' A hit song is a hit song. The only other time I felt that feeling was with 'Somethin' Stupid,' and it also went to No. 1." Strange served as arranger on most of her recordings and also played on many of them.

Owen Courreges: Five great Grinchy tricks -

Wed, Dec 21, 2011
As I departed, some jerk openly berated me for taking my dog due to the crowd, which I was already in the process of avoiding. It was a needless confrontation. My beagle, in true Snoopy-style, was nonplussed. 2.  Cars Parked Over the  #$%&% Yellow Line:  Look, I’m no friend to New Orleans meter-maids, but it’s the parking scofflaws that justify their existence, When somebody parks their car flush with the corner, turning vehicles can’t see oncoming traffic. This leads to t-bone accidents at unregulated intersections, which in turn leads to New Orleans having some of the highest car insurance rates in the nation.  If I had my druthers, any car parked completely over a yellow triangle would immediately be crushed into a cube and used to bludgeon the owner into a pulp (not that I’m for cruel and usual punishment, mind you, for while it might be cruel to pummel scofflaws into mucilage with a steel cube, it is not, in fact, unusual). 3.  Tourists Who Drive Slowly Down Major Thoroughfares and Stop at Every #$%&$% Intersection:  I fully understand that we are a tourist town, and that the economy therefore is unduly dependent upon dumpy Midwestern families wearing cargo snorts and crocks (shudder), but at the same time, we are an active city where people actually live their lives.  Visitors need to respect that.  Accordingly, I become more than a bit perturbed when I get stuck behind Joe Blow with out-of-state plates who expects me to have my journey delayed while he meanders down St. Charles/Prytania/ Magazine at twelve miles per hour, braking at every blasted intersection.  Yes, I know the mansions are pretty and captivating as are jingling keys to a toddler.  However, if you want to look at them, please pull over. 4.  People Who Think They Can Appropriate Public Property as Their #$%&$% Own:  You see this phenomenon every year during Mardi Gras.  People come in and install gargantuan ladders, rope off parts of the neutral ground, and basically go about as if they have squatter’s rights.  We also see it in the streets, when moving vans block traffic lanes and people put up cones to call “dibs” on street parking.  I...

People person finds passion in blood collecting - My West Texas

Sat, Oct 8, 2011
Clients call in the mornings to see if their favorite specialist is working on the day of their appointment. But then you'd notice the white coats. And the needles. Gray is a donor care specialist -- or "vampire" as she and her co-workers joke -- at United Blood Services. She supervises day-to-day operations of the blood-donating clinic and jumps in to collect blood from donors on a daily basis. Gray's career in blood collecting started with a phlebotomy class in Odessa to help with her part-time job at an area clinic. Previo...

Ardrossan: Preserving Radnor's green heart - Main Line

Sat, Sep 24, 2011
Needless to say, over the last decade, carefully negotiated and highly private conversations have been had among many stakeholders trying to steer the Ardrossan story to a happy ending.Enter Tom Dougherty, candidate for commissioner in the 7th Ward, who wrote for Main Line Media News including its Web site that Radnor’s “Board of Commissioners is prepared to spend $11 million to purchase undeveloped land for the benefit of one ward. This monumental decision should be left to the real purchasers, the taxpayers, rather than a majority of seven commissioners.” He cites a poll commissioned by Radnor on the issue, writing, “The trouble with the poll, in addition to the specific problems that I had with the way the questions were asked... is the poll is not conclusive. The answers to the question about the acquisition of open space in general were very positive, but when additional context was added in the form of increased taxes to pay for it, the numbers of people who were supportive dropped. The conclusions that followed from the focus group were even less supportive of the acquisition of open space because of the cost.”So let’s tease a bunch of things out of this.First, Radnor voters passed in 2006 (by a whopping 80 percent, by the way) a referendum that allows the township to incur a debt of up to $20 million for open space. I’d call that a mandate. The poll this year asked, “How supportive are you of the continued use of public dollars to purchase and preserve open space?” The answer: 65 percent were either supportive or very supportive; only 25 percent unsupportive.But then this clunky question was inserted into the poll: “How supportive would you be of purchasing a portion of the land surrounding the Ardrossan estate if it meant an increase in your property taxes by $129 annually, on average?” With that as the question, 38 percent are still supportive, 45 percent unsupportive and 17 percent neutral or unsure. This is one poorly written poll question; it strikes me as more typical of push polls, where you ask a question in a strongly worded way to push the respondent in a certain direction.That $129 tax increase assumes the township borrows $20 million, which it isn’t – onl...
