Spellcheck is Not Your Friend

There's a news story extolling the recent programming successes of RFD-TV. There's Imus, there's the new Levon Helm show...and there's something described as "a rural version of Larry King Live." (To paraphrase the Colbert Report, "Great mental image...or the greatest mental image?")

Anyway, they attribute RFD's achievements to its exceptional, memorable, one-of-a-kind leader: a man named "Patrick Gottschalk."

In fact, Mr. "Gottschalk" is so influential that they want you to remember his name, and throughout the article they repeat the word "Gottschalk"...eight times.

I'm sure Patrick isn't crazy about the spelling, but, as they say in H'wood...any exposure is good exposure. ;)

For those who remember, a more familiar setting, hayall over the barn and chickens roosting in the loft...it's time for "K-O-R-N news with Katie Couric.

Wonder what Charlie Farquahr would have thought of that."

Wow, they can't even get his name right...

No wonder Comcast has been so slow to add RFD to their channel lineups around the country(with the LONE exception of Tennessee)...

LOL, I guess it's true that any news is good news...

...but "Gottschalk?"

(And yes, Comcast needs to hurry up...for serious...)
