Ink-Stained Wretches

10:30 AM -- Some deeply disturbed person at the Columbia Journalism Review profiles the Type J personality:

    Published in the winter 2007 volume of Journalism History, "Depression, Drink and Dissipation" finds that almost half of the best people to ever push a noun against a verb in newsprint were debilitated by depression, serious anxiety, or bipolar disorder; over a third were titanic drunks, pill-poppers, or opium-addicts; nearly a third were serial philanderers, and a sizable bunch were misogynists, man-eaters, or violent bullies. In almost every case, the tendency to booze, carouse, or otherwise self-annihilate developed or seriously deepened during their days in journalism.
Jeez... I need a drink...

re: Ink-Stained Wretches So if Larry's the wretch, that means Panda's not one, right? And to think CLG thought they both could be.

Or was this article just a ruse at self-defecating humor?
