Sizzle: A reporter for a certain national newspaper who says I “seared him” in my blog a while back for a story he wrote about the blurring of lines between edit and advertising, e-mailed me today to let me know there are a group of professors who see things differently from me who were compelled to do something about it.
First, as the seven readers of this weblog know, I hate it when people think I’m “searing” them just because I resort to cheap-shots and sarcasm to attack their point-of-view. I would never want to “sear” people. That sounds so, I don’t know, personal. And I’m not the searing kind. Oh, wait. Except in the case of those professors.
