The view from the throne

By PHILLIPE AND JORGE  |  November 10, 2010

But perhaps Lauer peaked too early. P+J refer to the career-launching tête-à-tête Matty conducted with Jorge in 1984, a shining part of American television's historic lore. Lauer was doing PM Magazine in Providence at the time, and one of his interview subjects was Jorge, regarding Casa Diablo's finest launching a foray into talk radio in the Biggest Little. Phillipe asks of our extremely intelligent readers whether or not they consider this landmark, revealing profile to be of much more import and depth than his recent battle of the braindeads with Dubya. The answer here is yes, of course, and we are sure Today's quasi-respectable questioner deems it a career highlight.

George Bush's Decision Points is now Number 1 of the New York Times fiction best seller list. Could not think of a better doorstop or drink coaster. P+J give it four afternoon naps.
