Is It in You? or What's the Frequency, Kenneth?


Just ran out for pizza at a local joint. They had CNN on the telly. (Sadly, no footer matches at the time. If you're like me, I suppose you spend much of your day fiddling (fittling?) with your World Cup fantasy league team. Perhaps, like me, you disconcerted your fellow office-workers with your cries of anguish when Omar missed that penalty kick earlier today and cost you some dearly needed points. Losing to Ilie "Nasty" Nastase is one thing, but I'm behind the three sultry minxes who together constitute the Britpop phenom "Atomic Kitten." Not a bad place to be, perhaps, given the view, but, alas, I speak metaphorically.)

Now, where was I? Ah, yes, watching Jeannie Most's report on Dan Rather's farewell. Some prominent news reader (the name escapes me) actually opined that he thought Kenneth got a raw deal. Then Kenneth himself said, and I quote inaccurately, but stand by the general drift (much like Kenneth and his 1970s National Guard letter written on MicroSoft Word), "CBS has reneged on its promise to let me do that voodoo I do so well. They have offered me an office but no assignments. It's not in me to sit in an office and not do any work."

To which I reply, "It sure as Hell is in me to do precisely that!" I've been looking for a job with that description on Monster.com for quite some time now, but haven't been able to come up with the right search terms. I'd prefer an office at CNN (the Time-Warner building has an Whole Foods in the cellar), but Black Rock will do.

Open letter to the good folks at CBS (and to whoever does the hiring, as well--sorry, didn't mean to single out the custodial staff):

I can ring the bell in the church. Hire me. I can be reached care of this blog.

Yours,

Boko Fittleworth
