Hornswaggler | The culture, the humor, a bit of the sports, not so much the politics, and the workplace distraction

Hornswaggle is an alternate spelling of hornswoggle, an archaic word that means to bamboozle or hoodwink. I take my pronunciation from the late Harvey Korman in "Blazing Saddles" --

"I want rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, conmen, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswagglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass kickers, shit kickers and Methodists!"

This is insane

I don't have anything especially earth-shaking to say about Jeff Gannon, except that he had a couple really good years there for the Oakland Raiders before suffering a spine injury that now threatens his career. Go anywhere on the blogosphere and you can learn what the story is. But this is really out of control.

Here is the Talon News web site, Gannon's place of employ, until the whoopsie. This is one impressive news organization, as you'll see if you navigate around the site a little. For instance, you'll no doubt be impressed if you peruse the "resources" page.

And if you want to be a reporter for Talon News, why, simply volunteer.
