two funny posts on Salon's Table Talk from people
named ad jameson and monchie of nyc on your tv
performance. monchie's in particular is quite funny.
the weblink to the
their emails are email@example.com and
KURTZ: Well, joining us now, Joshua Marshall,
Washington Editor of The American Prospect and a write
for Slate.com, and Chris Caldwell, senior writer for

household pets, and neither do I. So, in writing in
Vegan Weekly that the press wildly overplayed this
story, it kind of sounds like you're acting as a
knee-jerk Kurtz defender.
And maybe followed by a hard-hitting question like
MONCHIE: Chris Caldwell, the fact that the pet owners
won't come forward publicly, perhaps to keep the
spotlight off Howard Kurtz, doesn't mean it didn't
the weblike to Table Talk is liike so:
