AHEM, I QUIT

Found this blurb quite funny about the guy who was hired to be the new writer over at Gawker.com. He was hired for this gig, considered a good one in the blogging world, and well, he couldn't hack it all all. Some dude named Richard Morgan quit after one day! Now, I find it funny that someone quits a job after one day, especially a journalism job. You would think they would stick it out for a while. But I guess the stories he had to write about were just plain stupid.
I also hear the pay over at Gawker is no good. Why would anyone serious about a writing career want to go work for a blog, anyway? Why not -- work as a screenwriter?!?!?!

Ha ha ha.

UPDATE: Here's a New York Times article asking the question: has Gawker jumped the shark?!
