Philly Inquirer Letter Of The Week

31 Mar

From the complainer files, here’s another old guy who’s asking for completely necessary changes to a newspaper’s layout:

Comics move

With the comics now in the TV section, might you at least place them at the center of the section so that they can easily be removed and read separately? Moishe Garfinkle
Philadelphia

Once again, the Inky should have no problem re-doing their entire layout in order to satisfy the completely legitimate request of one old crank.

Jason Belmonte Is Winning Bowling Tournaments

30 Mar

Hailing from Australia, international bowling star Jason Belmonte came over the Pacific to not just compete in the Professional Bowler’s Association but to do well.  He’s done just that after Sunday’s victory at the Bowling Foundation Long Island Classic (what a great name). Belmonte, the first two-hander to win a PBA tournament, defeated Bill O’Neil and Michael Fagan to take home the title.  The tournament was unique in that there were two different oil patterns on the two lanes, and Belmonte showed his prowess on both.  While he’s previously  been around the world bowling in major tournaments, winning a PBA title in his first year on the tour is quite an accomplishment.  Congrats, Jason.

Next week’s tourney stops in North Brunswick, NJ for the US Open, probably the most difficult and most prestigious tournament on the PBA Tour. Should you have $500 for the non-PBA member fee, you can even bowl.

Reading Eagle Letter Of The Week

25 Mar

The physical version of the Reading Egale recently underwent  a makeover as they became smaller, sleeker and more like a tabloid in appearance. While much of the feedback from the hoi polloi  has been positive in nature Milton Taylor doesn’t count himself among the pleased:

I read where one of your readers gave the newspaper an A+ for returning the television listings to the daily paper (“Paper now rates A+,” Reading Eagle, March 17). I give you a D.

You start the listings at 7 p.m. If I want to know what is on from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., I must go to the listings in the television guide in the Sunday edition.

Go back to the listings you had before you changed formats.

BIGGITY BAM Reading Eagle! Milton’s got issues with you and your fancy little paper.  How the hell is he going to find out what’s playing on the teevee set from 6 to 7 pm? There’s literally no other way he can find this information! I applaud Milton and join his call to go back, back I say!  I’m sure it costs little to nothing to redo a newspaper’s layout.

The Sports Guy Is Doing The #1 Podcast In The Nation

24 Mar

Why, he’s doing the Adam Carolla podcast of course.  You didn’t think I meant The B.S. Report, did you? Love the Duke Sucks T-shirt Bill, and love the made up movies.  Keep ‘em coming. Pedoph-isle! Simmons and Carolla talk diddling of underage celebrities, Charles Manson’s mindset and story, the ability for widowers to bag some tail, old Negro Leaguers, and discusses the made up movie Head Games.  Somehow Carolla casts the same people over and over in his made up movies, almost like a real Hollywood studio! Pick up a stone – Summer 2010.
