Stuff left over™


A new feature, making its debut with this post.

• Peyton Manning is the new Catherine Zeta-Jones — everywhere you look, there they are. In magazines, newspapers, on TV, they're the sock puppets of today's advertising. What's that mean? I dunno — you tell me. That's why I pay you the big bucks.

• You know you're out of it when you don't laugh at the enormous amount of news coverage given the past couple days to the latest rearrangement of the deck chairs on the good ship U.S.S. Ford, moving at flank speed in heavy fog directly towards an iceberg. In fact, they might already have hit, but what with all the fluff and chaff they're throwing out perhaps they haven't felt the shock yet up on the bridge. Goodness knows the hapless common stockholders in steerage are bailing plenty fast.

• Speaking of funny, can you believe the equally large amount of space and wind given over to Katie Couric's anointment as Queen of the News at CBS? You'd think it mattered who read what we already know. TV's another business that's not yet cognizant it's already dead and simply walking off its zombie spell until it collapses.

That'll do for now.

I though you would analyze her face, Cuddly Katie, for signs of maintenence or props. The WaPo article today about Nora Ephron is scary that way.

"Peyton Manning is the new Catherine Zeta-Jones — everywhere you look, there they are."

You mean its not just a regional thing??? I'm use to seeing him on every other commercial in Indy, but who'd have thunk we stuck the rest of the country with this guy that always seems to fall short when the chips are down.

Personally, I'd rather have a few more commercials with Ms. Jones...
