A personal blog. Because I said so.
The profile seems to have generated a lot of talk, but I was not impressed by it. What do you expect to find, interviewing such a person? Are we to be shocked that he's an asshole who takes advantage of the girls he films? I don't think it's particularly gonzo, as some people would have it; just provocative. The whole thing left me feeling queasy.That said, the free "GGW" T-shirts distributed to the staff were pretty sweet.
Perhaps it's naive of me, but I didn't really expect him to be THAT much of an asshole. And I think I was impressed mostly because the opportunity to do that kind of reporting doesn't normally present itself in Cincinnati - or if it does, we don't take advantage of it. Can you imagine that piece running in the Enquirer?
It was a huge risk, as far as reporting goes, and it's wonderful that the writers here are allowed to take such risks. That part is quite exciting!On an unrelated note, here's a fun copy editing post (sorry for long url):www.electrolicious.com/archives/2006/08/offbeat_bride_wordli.html
Girls Gone Wild restaurants? Maybe he should start his own clothing line.
