CAN I WRITE FOR THE NY TIMES PLEASE
GOVERNOR GARY LOCKE
See previous post for more.
The NY Times has an article, which seems to repeat what I've got going here. I like to be ahead of the curve. PS I just got the NY TImes update. Well, it came at 2 a.m. but I just checked my e-mail.
This line from the article rang true: "So his biography may be more powerful than the message he plans to deliver in a bit more than 10 minutes Tuesday night."
Ten minutes? That's so unfair. Still, it's a journalistic ethos - say it stronger and shorter.
UPDATE 4:42 - I have to disagree with the last line:
Mr. Locke is not known as a dynamic speaker. When asked how he felt approaching Tuesday's speech, the biggest political moment of his life, he said, "Yikes!"
Well, dynamic as in "rousing the crowd." - no he' s not. Effective? Yes, as I indicated above. Biggest political moment in his life. I'd lay bets it was actually becoming governor.
And seriously, what point did I miss that was covered in the NY Times article? And I made it sound more interesting.
