The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

The new McCarthyism

As in Charlie McCarthy. Think about it for a moment: Edgar Bergen made history as a ventriloquist. On the radio. At least you never saw his lips moving.

2006: Sirius, one of the two satellite radio services, has struck a deal with Playboy Enterprises to produce a Playboy-branded radio show.

History in the making? Not likely. Something about this doesn't make sense, even to me, and I'm the guy with the database of women you can't see.

Then again, they keep telling us that aural sex really isn't sex.

(Brian J. Noggle can't see this either.)

It's for all those people who buy the magazine for the articles.
