*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Hi Ned,

Here's my one paragraph pitch.

Thanks very much!

~Victoria Forte

OPP: I write therefore I am. I’m a professional writer and editor specializing in dynamic corporate communications. A proven deadline beater, I’ve written copy for Bristol-Myers Squibb (over five years) and Prudential (over five years) and I’ve freelanced for Novartis among others. I’m adept at discussing difficult subject matters, such as how a drug works, in a way readers can easily understand. I was a key contributor to BMS annual reports for the years 2002 through 2007 as well as the company’s international online news magazine. I put people at ease during interviews so they open up and share their feelings. This has helped me create many interesting news items and heartwarming profiles. I’m looking for either freelance work or a Northern N.J.-based position.

*** Toto, I think we’re in Kansas:

Hi Ned–I'm moving to Wichita, KS and want to continue receiving the

wonderful JOTW. Can I receive emails to my new address?

This interview impressed me. Magic Dick explains the song and its provenance and tribute to great harp players like Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williams, and James Cotton. Whammer Jammer has with surprising fine artistry and musicianship.

See for yourself. This is rock and roll:

If you like Magic Dick and J. Geils doing Whammer jammer like I do, then you gotta see this guy:

*** JOTW Sports with Ned and Mike:

Ned: Mike, did you catch any of the MLB All Star game?

Mike: A little bit. I wasn't about to sit through 15 innings. I'm a morning person. I thought Bud Selig was a morning person, too, which was why he let that one game finish in a tie a couple of years ago–so he could go to bed.

Ned: I thought the pregame show was not going to end without one of those

veterans being called out for the last time.

Mike: I met Yogi Berra a few years ago at a conference. I would let him sleep in my bed if he asked me. In a platonic sense, of course.

Ned: Notice how those Yankee fans warmly welcomed the SEVEN Boston Red Sox All Stars.

Mike: That wasn't aimed at the Red Sox. That was aimed at that Red Sox fan who beat up the guy in Boston a couple of weeks ago because he had a New York bumper sticker.

Ned: That was classy of Terry Francona to let A-Rod and Derek Jeter make a grand exit in the middle of an inning.

Mike: Well, A-Rod had a date with Madonna and it was Jeter's turn to turn on the X-Box 360 in the locker room.

Ned: Do you think the N.Y. fans really wanted to harm Jonathan Papelbon's

pregnant wife?

Mike: You know, it's a shame that she isn't Johnny Damon's wife. They could have called the kid the “Damon seed.”

Ned: Who spit better, the AL or NL?

Mike: AL. They have a history. Two words: Gaylord Perry.

Ned: Why doesn't the NL have the designated spitter?

Mike: They use more traditional products, like Vitalis. And The Dry Look.

Ned: Mike, they say the game was the longest ever. Or was that just the introductions?

Mike: Those introductions were so long even Bill Clinton complained.

Ned: Why can't the National League win?

Mike: I’m old enough to remember back in the 1970s when the American League lost something like 14 straight games. This is payback—the AL has a long memory.

Ned: With the AL winning that means the Red Sox will have home field advantage in the World Series?

Mike: You are an eternal optimist. Of course, as I write this I am expecting the last-place Cleveland Indians to start a 54-game winning streak.

Ned: What's the difference between the clear and the cream?

Mike: Only Scientologists are allowed to take the “clear.”

Ned: Which one did you take?

Mike: I use something called Procede. It’s the opposite of “recede,” as in “receding hairline.” If it’s good enough for Giuseppe Franco and Gary Busey, it’s good enough for me.

Ned: Well you sure prove that HGH works!

Mike: In 2004 I took a trip to Asia and can say with absolute certainty that I was the largest man in Korea

Ned: Ronaldinho transferred to AC Milan late Tuesday, leaving FC Barcelona

after the club's new coach declared the team would plan for next season

without the Brazilian playmaker.

Mike: Yes. I am reeling. We saw both teams play each other several years ago.

He will be a good fit at AC Milan.

Ned: Of course I remember, Mikey. I remember being baptized. Okay, I don't,

but I remember the christening party at the house afterwards.

We used beer instead of water. After that, I don't remember much,

either…
