Cool quote

Figure this is a good one for scarcrest.

"Trying to be a first-rate reporter on the average American newspaper is like trying to play Bach's 'St. Matthew's Passion' on a ukelele." - Bagdikian's Observation

Seems about right...
Or, in my case, trying to be a first-rate columnist. I guess I could write for free -- do all my research off the clock, go talk to people off the clock, etc. But I refuse to do that because of the questions it would raise if, say, I were to get in an accident doing this -- would insurance cover it? -- and because it would only encourage them to ask other people to work off the clock.
