AND I WRITE THREE TIMES A MONTH, BUT NEVER MIND THAT 

The corpse of Nick Coleman has been picked over so thoroughly today that there are almost no bits of flesh left to chew on. But here's one morsel I haven't seen digested: Hindrocket posted his response to Coleman's column at 12:51 a.m., less than an hour into the column's Wednesday date and several hours before the earliest of early risers could have fetched the dead-tree version from their doorsteps. Coleman had a full five days to craft his piece (plus his day off last Wednesday!), and all he could manage was a farrago of ad hominem attacks, delusional self-puffery, unsupported charges, non sequiturs, and penis jokes. Hindrocket calmly eviscerated Coleman's "argument" in minutes. Coleman gets paid handsomely to write three times a week; Hindrocket writes three or more times a day for free. This, in a nutshell, is the problem with the mainstream media.
