From the Orange Juice Blog:
Picture us at the Orange Juice Blog office. It’s early — about 2 p.m. Chairman Vern is out doing some story about “harvesting”; I, Managing Editor Greg Diamond, have been left in charge. I’m working on layout, assignments, when suddenly star reporter Cynthia Ward bursts in which what she says is a scoop. ”Print this,” she yells! ”Wait just a minute, Dollface,” I say. I stop talking to Vern’s life-sized doll, to which I’d been complaining — she’s discreet — and turn my attention to Cynthia, who is obviously trying to butter me up. She shoves the copy into my face and I begin to read:
“Our Greg Diamond did a fabulous job of dissecting the August 13 Anaheim City Council meeting, and the blatant give-way of our public funding to the Chamber of Commerce. Note how I stopped just short of saying “gift of public funds” because that phrase carries a legal definition, and until I talk to someone who went to law school for more than a concert series I am not willing to go there just yet. But I can see it from here.
“Greg very wisely asks throughout his recap (with a serious doff from the Mr. Ward who loved the Jefferson reference) ‘What meeting?’”
So far I like it — this is my kind of story! Plot, characters, setting — the whole nine yards! I read on:
