Thanks for being so fascinated by me, really. But I'm taken.

Did any of "Isthmus's" "journalists" report from that forum? Or, was that alley not chic enough?

I've noticed most of your rag's "news reports" stem from entertainment establishments and luxury eateries.

That's some mighty fine poor man's biting sarcasm you've got working there.

Would you define this as "media criticism?" Because I've noticed that most of your "posts" contain "sentences."

This is a dated example, but years ago Bongo Video had a trivia Tuesday question:
Jesse Bradford is the poor man's _____?
The answer was Freddie Prinze Jr., but I've remembered it this long because one of the choices was "lobster." It's probably funnier if you remember Jesse Bradford.
