    Jeez, Dougie, you coulda been a contender if you just hadn’ta gone off and journalisted all those years and… Oh wait, you ARE a contender, and journalism may even have helped secure the gig. Hmmm, so much for cliches. Congrats, irregardless. (But will you at least boycott the awards dinner, from Tahiti maybe, or Yakima even?)
