Subject: The Real Shribman Appears!

http://www.post-gazette.com/opinion/david-shribman/2016/08/14/David-M-Shribman-The-old-school-politics-of-millennials/stories/201608140078

Read the first two graphs carefully. As usual, Shrib only places credence in the WSJ. Note how many times staffers have shown up at his PG "Town Halls" as speakers especially Shrib's pal, WSJ DC Bureau Chief Gerald Seib.

Two things in the second graph really stand out. One is the word "hopeless," which describes Shribman's tenure presiding over the decline and fall of the P-G. The other is the defensive sentence about those who would feel a baby boomer political moderate (himself) would have "nothing productive to say about (millenials)." He advises those skeptics, "now is the time to turn the page or click away. Cheerio."

That's always been his general attitude toward P-G readers. This is the paper JR Block and myself want for our friends. If you can understand it, great. Remember, we're smarter, better and more insightful than you. But if you don't like it, we don't care what you do like or want. Turn the page or click away. Cheerio."

So I will just say "Cheerio," David. Good taste prevents me from using the way more appropriate signoff, the one that begins with "go" and ending with "yourself."
