Friday Five time. The answers to the questions you've been longing to ask...

1. What's your favorite TV show and why? Although I don't watch it devoutly, The Daily Show. I started watching it regularly during the 2000 presidential election and its neverending aftermath, and thought the creators of the program showed eerie prescience in naming their election coverage "Indecision 2000." I love "headlines"; the titles are witty and irreverent: "Obstructed Colin," "Throw in the Powell," etc.

2. Who is your favorite television star? Not sure if I have one these days, but I'm liking Charlie Sheen more and more in his Spin City role.

3. What was your favorite TV show as a child? The Flintstones.

4. What show do you think should have been cancelled by now? Baby Bob. Talking babies are bad. Very, very bad.

5. What new show do you hope escapes the axe this season? I really, honestly don't have any strong feelings about this, because I haven't watched any of the new shows (except Babbly Bob).

April Rainey. Got an email from Megan, a former colleague who designed e-vangelism.com for me a few years ago. Now she's left the world of marketing and web design to write and be a stay-at-home mother to Rainey. You can read all about her adventures as a mom in her online journal, Rainey Days.

Queer-y? For aspiring writers everywhere, Ken Gordon of Media Bistro serves up this open query letter to the editor of Harper's. Excerpt:

If you give me this assignment, I'd tackle my subject in a way that no other writer has ever considered. I'd write the piece from the point of view of a pastrami sandwich. Think about it: Cold cuts are such a marginalized minority — marginalized, demonized, shoved to the side of the cultural menu. Writing from this point of view would really appeal to your thoughtful audience.

No more Mr. Nice Guy? Indeed. Everywhere I turn on the web these days, I find the same Alice Cooper quote staring me in the face. It's also here and there.
