Overheard Today...

Overheard today at a coffee shop, a veteran editor explaining to a new employee of some kinda newsprint:
"All you have to do to write an article on an artist is go to their website and use part of their bio and then use the stuff they say about themselves. No need to talk to anyone..That's all it takes to write a music feature."

I don't actually know what the periodical was, but it was at a coffee house in north San Diego County. The conversation about writing was happening at a table with papers carefully strewn about, and it looked rather official, between mentor and new writer/employee. 

This did not look like a writing session for Crawdaddy Magazine, let's put it that way....
