Fanfare for the (un)common man…

Greg Packer knows what the news media want: “You know, I always come up with an answer for everything, number one. And, and I always give everybody, you know, the respect and the time that they need. I make it very easy for them. I make it accessible…” You may recall that Packer makes a hobby of being quoted as a man-in-the-street source. Rhetorica background on Packer here, here, and here.

    Here’s a story about the Reuters version of Greg Packer. Oh, BTW, I think the bit about Heywood Jablome made it’s way into a recently published book about the Masters called The Battle for Augusta by Alan Shipnuck. I’m not about to spend $25 for a book about “Hootie, Martha, and the Masters of the Universe”, but the next time I’m at my local bookstore, I’m gonna check the index of the book for good ol’ Heywood.
