.. fire Maureen Dowd? I mean, her last column is an interview with inventors of Twitter. Let's imagine for a moment that the phenomenon of Twitter hasn't been explored by numerous other writers. And let's imagine that an interview is an acceptable way to use your column space in the NYT. Even if I give her a break on those two things, how does someone think this is remotely good material:
ME: ..Is there any thought that doesn’t need to be published?
BIZ: The one I’m thinking right now.
ME: Did you know you were designing a toy for bored celebrities and high-school girls?
BIZ: We definitely didn’t design it for that. If they want to use it for that, it’s great.
ME: I heard about a woman who tweeted her father’s funeral. Whatever happened to private pain?
EVAN: I have private pain every day.
