So I guess somebody else is going to have to make stuff up

The Plain Dealer is hurting, and as part of its recent cuts, they have lost that Jayson Blair of Cleveland journalism, Roger Brown.

Brown's articles, when they said anything at all, were chock full of unnamed sources and implied criticism that even he knew he couldn't get away with making explicitly. And the guy was the ultimate Monday Morning QB, telling everyone after the fact that he knew all along that this guy or that guy wouldn't work out.

I think the defining moment of his career was just this season when he predicted the Oakland Raiders would make it to the Super Bowl, and then a few weeks into the season had the gall to trash talk those who said the Browns might get 7 or 8 wins this season.

I have issues with some other PD guys, but they are what they are. At least the try to stick to the facts, and they have a little class.
