Brown alumni magazine profiles Grist leader Chip Giller
The latest issue of Brown Alumni Magazine (BAM!) contains a long and appropriately adoring profile of our brilliant, witty, and dashingly handsome leader, Chip Giller. My only beef with the piece is this bit:
The humor is most visibly expressed in its headlines; when the Bush administration tried to undermine European governments’ efforts to test the public-health impact of industrial chemicals, Grist titled its story "No Chemical Left Behind."
Um, exsqueeze me, but that is one of our least funny headlines ever. The writer couldn’t find anything better than that?
For future writers of adoring profiles, may I suggest the stone classic Cattle Star Redactica.
