Gargoyle the Twit

As I mentioned before, I lament the gradual loss of newspapers and news magazines. The Old Gargoyle's generation produced serious, outstanding journalists, investigative reporters, and general writers for newspapers, journals, radio, and television. The younger generation has given us blogs, bloggers, blogging, googles, googlers, googling, twits, twitters, tweeters, and twitting. Those don't represent serious reporting---those are sound effects.
