Keating Holland Cares So Much That It Hurts

When you've got to have enough programming to fill 24 hours in a day, you'll make a mountain out of whatever hill is available.

I'm a little disturbed by the amount of detail present in CNN's Veepstakes Game (assembled by Keating Holland, CNN Political Unit), where you vote on 32 possibilities for Kerry's running mate. The candidates range from Tom Brokaw to Anne Richards and their chances are detailed in four-part harmony.

Wow. As an amatuer news junkie, it's impressive and frightening to see the breadth of trivial knowledge that professional news junkies bring to their craft.
