In today’s Staff Report, What’s the origin of “hot dog”?, our all-around main man and prophet at Cecil’s right hand Ed Zotti takes a stab at answering this age-old question.
In doing so, he quotes himself from an article in the Wall Street Journal from January 2, 2001. Putting aside the issue of his feeding us reruns of his warmed-over research, what’s Ed doing writing for the WSJ? Do the head honchos at the Chicago Reader? Does Cecil know this? (Well, of course he does, he knows everything.)
More important, is Ed a WSJ regular? Does this mean that I’m going to have to pick up the Journal to get more than the meagre crumbs of his wisdom that he dispenses to us here?
What’s a Little Ed fan to do?
