I've thought DeBerry was a douche ever since he was a chief shit-stirrer back in the whole Magnet school mess a few years ago. I was about to enter Ben Franklin as a freshmen during one of the nastiest incarnations of the Magnet School mess. Remember Carl Galmon? I do... That mess left a profound impact on the way I look at the world.
But that discussion is for another day...
I plan on talking about what a big douche DeBerry is later, but for now, I noticed that there are some out there that actually think he's a good writer. I know why they think it, but that's just plain wrong. Lolis Eric Elie is the writer people think DeBerry is. In fact, when the blind squirrel (DeBerry) occasionally finds a nut (writes something worthwhile), I think it's really Elie covering for his sorry ass. Please, read Elie and cut DeBerry's articles out of the Times-Pic and put them at the bottom of birdcages.
If I ever take over the Times-Pic, I'm firing DeBerry and giving his salary to Elie with instructions to double his article output.
Also, on a related note, what's the matter with James Gill? Ever since Katrina, he's been extremely disappointing. He's lost the fire in his belly that made him so good. And he's had so many targets! Did somebody snatch him up, send him to Gitmo, and replace him with a Manchurian Candidate?
