A little Calvin Trillin for you...

Here. Nice piece in Slate. Need a way to quantify the pretentious gits in your life? Then you'll like this.

I adore Trillin. I've linked him before, and I'm always happy when I find more of his work. This work has stayed with me for years - and it's basically about finding a parking spot in NYC.

I love quiet writers, who kind of sneak up on you. That's Trillin; he's like the Bob Newhart of writing. And if you don't love Bob Newhart, well, then we have nothing more to talk about.

I think that Slate just coined a very interesting phrase."ACI" I like it. A mature version of "DB".

Thanks for link.

My ex boss hit 100 percent ACI just by walking into the lunch room one day. Three minutes he managed to turn 8 people against him and one of them into a thief. It took a U of Western MBA grad to hit that level of ACI. It's a gift!
