Evidently someone took a picture of Shaugnessy watching himself on TV and got it posted on a blog and Shaugnessy was so upset by it that he actually called up the individuals employeer to tattle on him.
Maybe this is why Shaughnessy's articles have so little research or reason. He spends all his time personally responding to the tons of hatemail he gets.
Anyway, he is doing a booksigning for his new book (which is awful, by the way) at the Barnes & Noble in Holyoke, Mass where I work on June 9th. I'm thinking of printing out that picture and asking him to sign it for me.
I'm afraid he'll punch me. Or start crying. Both would be pretty weird.
