I Steal Material From Andy Borowitz

My man Andy appears each Friday on the CNN feature "Gimme A Minute". Since they stole my name (sort of), I steal back, paraphrasing wildly.

Q: How much damage has the Jayson Blair scandal done to the NY Times?

Andy B: Oh, I think they are doing a good job of turning it into a positive. Have you seen their new motto? "All the News Tha's Fit To Print... And So Much More".

Q: What is your pick for under-reported story of the week?

Andy B: Most news outlets have reported from Iraq that we have recently captured Mrs. Anthrax and Dr. Germ. However, the overlooked story is that we have also apprehended Dr. Evil, Dr. Octopus, and the Penguin. I read it in the Times.
