If only newspapers weren't such sticklers about keeping their news and opinion walled off from one another. Maybe then more readers would have had the pleasure of reading Plain Dealer op-ed writer Kevin O'Brien's recent column on global warning
You'll have to read it yourself; the concept is too groundbreaking to attempt to recreate by mere mortal. But O'Brien's basic message is that global warming obviously is fiction, created by Al Gore and all his crazy drug-smoking friends. How does he know this? Well, duh. Because it's cold out!
No, seriously. That's his take.
"For years now, the people of Northeast Ohio ... have been promised warming," writes O'Brien, the paper's deputy editorial director
, "but I'll be darned if I see anyone delivering."
Insiders say the piece was the first in a continuing series by O'Brien, called Shit That Can't Be True Because It Isn't Happening to Me. Upcoming columns include, "AIDS Crisis? Then why did I test negative?" and "Until a Sudanese Boy Shanks Me In The Leg, Darfur is Dar-fake." -- Joe P. Tone
