I can only assume that Brooks' editors at the Failing NYT despise him as much as the rest of us do, and enjoy watching him humiliate himself.

There's no other explanation for columns as mind-blowingly as today's getting published.

Does NYT still have editors? I thought they were laying them all off.

ol yolk but worth the effort--- Fastest way to get hold of an NYT editor? "WAITER!"

Captain Hate

Some of these stories seem a little fanciful, if you ask me.

Maybe Buzzfeed found them in a dossier.

Regarding The Omen, I'm going to hold off on any snarky comments because of the genetic lottery she was forced to play as long as she stays off Twitter.

From the "youth achievements in summer" file---

College ManKid spent Monday attending a daylong training seminar on "Fundamentals of EXCEL".

Got him a nice sertiffykit and everthang. Plus a professional manual for continued skill upgrades.

All courtesy of his summer employer, Kingsford Capital of Point Richmond, CA.

This young man is en fuego.

Point Richmond actually is a nice little town, and NOT to be confused with Richmond. The latter is a dump.

CH----> I've unleashed my Snark IV howitzers on the mutt Chelsea since I found out she'd worshipped in the Temple of Affordable Beauty.

Just sayin.

PS: Is it football season yet?

as long as she stays off Twitter.

But she won't. Just like the woman who spawned her, she will never, ever, ever, ever shut up. She will never stop telling everyone else how to live their lives.

So she deserves all the snark and ridicule and ugliness that comes her way, and more.

I wonder at times what Chelsea's net cash burn rate is? And how is that crime family sustaining their "lifestyle?"

Tell him there used to be this software called Lotus 1-2-3 that replaced VisiCalc from the Trash 80s, until one day the Sooper jeanyuses replaced it with a clunky space hog called Symphony and BOOM went the dynamite.

Kev,

They save money on clothing expenses.

MM---> tax deductions on used underwear? -Kev

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Also possible. It's obvious they are not SPENDING money on clothing.

Plus, seersucker knickers? Who even MAKES those? Not seersucker shorts. They are knickers, gathered at the knee. Horrendous!

Also, do they mostly stay in the Bat Cave? Whiter than a porcelain sink.

KK,

Speaking of football, I think I'll venture down to Ahia's biggest small town for this:

Not really, CH. Symphony was a collection of apps like MS Office (only it came out several years earlier) that included a spreadsheet tool. 1-2-3 continued as a stand-alone product. I worked on 1-2-3 in the late 80s/early 90s.

DrJ

Back in the day, I used Supercalc. It had wonderful keyboard shortcuts that irritatingly are not in Excel. Of course it had no graphics, since it ran on a terminal (80x25 -- yuck!).

Dave (in MA)

New threadsky.

Captain Hate

Dave, I never used Symphony but some yinzer did and I just remembered it taking up multiple floppy discs to store very little data.

Dave (in MA)

That was basically the way things worked in the old days, Cap. I can remember doing an OS update that took all afternoon and something like 25 floppies.

CH---> back in 1981 at the start of my grad school capers, the crabs in the grad room were scrambling to impress with their Lotus and Symphony projects... i used a whiz bang package "Stat Pac" and got my study done in 12 months.

The purpose of nets is to catch feesh.

Thanks for that, Clarice.
