Wisdom from Taxi Drivers 

Kevin Drum has a round-up of "last refuge of a scoundrel" journalism (otherwise known as asking the cabdriver for his opinion) on the DNC.

I myself got into a taxi today, and had this conversation:
ME: Hi. I'm going to (LOCATION REDACTED).

DRIVER: You like Kerry, huh?

ME: Wha? Are you talking to me?

DRIVER: No. I know. I know.

ME: Did you ask me if I like Kerry?

DRIVER: Hold on... Sir, I'm talking on my cell phone.
There you have it, folks. The death knell of this form of shoddy journalism: the cell phone.
