Reading the Newspaper with George W.S. Trow - IV

“Do yourself a favor. Just wait to see if Al Gore is nominated. Wake up the day after the next Democratic Convention and ask a friend, 'Did Gore make it?' My guess is that he will have made it.

”Take the fifty-thousand-word investment you were prepared to make on Gore's election prospects and follow another story--Zaire, par example.“

-- George W.S. Trow, ”My Pilgrim's Progress: Media Studies 1950-1998," pg. 44
