Although this is probably much too much info for you, I'd say that sometimes, it's a good thing I read the NY Times in the bathroom.
We all saw the "Alive and Well in Silicon Alley" article in yesterday's Sunday Times, right?
It truly amazes me what passes as fact not only in major newspapers, but on the web, as well.
You know what? I don't even have to say it. So I won't. Pamela Parker says it better than I ever could, and she has much better links.
I will say this, though: As Tom Watson so eloquently, eloquently did, "Don't believe everything you read, and watch out for what section of the paper you read it in."
I have this overwhelming urge to take a scalding hot shower and scrub my skin with a steel wool brush. Hard.
