Random Things

Grossman's New Condo
Rex Grossman recently bought a condo in the new Trump Tower here in Chicago.  The unit cost him $2.68 million - he's making $3 million this year.  Grossman has a one year contract and just lost his starting job.  What could his realtor have told him that would have convinced him that buying a condo in Chicago is a good idea?  Let me take a stab at it:
  • You'll finally know what it feels like to be taller than someone else.
  • You'll be right by the river - the only thing in Chicago that stinks worse than you.
  • This is a great place to retire.
  • The windows don't open, so if you fumble it won't hurt anyone but yourself.

Red Eye "Journalism"
Yesterday, I noticed an article on the back page of the Red Eye in the "Red Hot" section - the celebrity gossip portion of the paper.  It was about Lindsay Lohan confirming on a radio show that she has been dating a woman.  The last paragraph of the article appears below:
At press time, no further comment about the interview was published on either woman's MySpace page or on people.com or usmagazine.com.
Good work, Team Red Eye.  Way to cover your bases.  If you're an aspiring journalist, make sure you at those items to your checklist.  Check MySpace?  Done.  Check People?  Done.  Check US Magazine?  Done.  This story is a GO!
