This is what passes for insightful commentary from Ernest Hooper, the lead metro columnist in today’s Tampa Bay Times.
Last paragraph (before his ridiculous sign-off of “That’s all I’m saying” — as if that wasn’t clear already), he writes, “my 11-year-old has taken to making stuff out of patterened duct tape, like flowers, purses and even cardboard-based sandals. Online sites show her how to do it, and she’s giddy about it. … I don’t get it, either.”
What I don’t get is why Hooper is given such valuable real estate in the newspaper.
