Geezer, Gasbag Alert

Geezers first: Louis Rukeyser has landed a job at CNBC, which will air a carbon copy of his dreadful "Wall Street Week" program at 8:30 on Friday nights. This is the same time slot he had when the program aired on PBS.

Gasbags next: CNN anchor-gasbag Lou Dobbs huffs and puffs in today's Wall Street Journal, defending himself against charges that he's in the tank with Arthur Andersen. He acts as if he just found out that journalism is a business of cheap shots. He'd be a lot more convincing if he didn't pretend to be so naive.
