A piece for an upcoming show. How many puns can you fit into a movie? The Marx brothers could tell you.

Archy and Mehitabel

I recently reread Don Marquis's Archy and Mehitabel poems, and they inspired me. There's no reason behind this, I just like it.

Split Personalities

So, watching the news, and thinking about all the different points of view all these pundits have, I realized that Cable News would be an excellent metaphor for tetrology, the study of four. Here are four different personalties, each one assigned a classical Greek element, one of the four-color printing hues, and all of them, apparently on channel 4.

In case you didn't catch it, clockwise from top left are Rachel Maddow (MSNBC), Lou Dobbs (CNN), Bill O'Reilly (Fox News), and John Stewart (Comedy Central).
