    my man Layne 

    has made the big time, FOXNEWS.com. He didn’t have to get on tv and yell at people, he didnt have to get an eye-lift, he didnt have to get traded for millions of dollars and several high draft choices, he simply had to be himself (and provide more insights in a teeney little column than Fox has on half of it’s huge site.)

    Yes, they present him like he’s a witty highschooler typing away on his pappy’s 486 above the garage after class, but what did you expect from the fourth network?

    All I have to say is I’m glad that he is getting some of the recognition that he deserves, and once the channel realizes that he can speak nearly as well as he can type and he has an irresistable drawl-like thing which would make him perfect for television, then we can all really rejoice in the splendor, but let’s first click the front page of FoxNews.com’s Views and see the wonder, and then click the little box buddy and read the words and click the links.

    Ah, and you can say that you all knew him when he was just a drunk with a smelly suit jacket.

    Nice work, compadre.

    But what’s this, a Ken Layne archive of FoxNews.com stories? This is not the first story that he has written for them?

    Alas, I am the drunk, and not even a classy enough one to don a suit coat!

    Where have I been during all of this progress? Lord help us, I couldnt have been working!

    Anyway, good to see your bro’s making a name for themselves where they belong: on the Internet pointing fingers at the idiots and spotting the marks. But what I really love is his obvious ommission of his ever working for the Online Journalism Review in his bio at the bottom of his columns. Guess they wont be getting any hits from his column, but gratefully I am. Thanks, bro.
