King's worth half a bil. No surprise. I wouldn't have been surprised if it was more.

Yes, he certainly is quite prolific as a writer.

I remember back in the 80's, SNL did a little Weekend Update skit poking fun at what a writing machine he is...



He must be typing 200 wpm like an office secretary.

Seems about right, a real typewriter, that Stephen King.

James Patterson's another one.

Well it WAS the 1980's, afterall.

Yeah, word processors existed then, but they weren't ubiquitous like computers are today.

Plus, I guess the typewriter got the point across better and gave it a funnier visual appeal.

Well, I was calling King a real typewriter. Just a little play on words. Very little.

Ah, got it.

Maybe if you had said "...a real human typewriter..." I would have gotten it.

Maybe I should get a laptop. I miss real typing. This touchscreen one-key-at-a-time thing is a drag sometimes.

ESPN's baseball analyst Eduardo PĂ©rez. I don't care what his credentials are, his voice is like nails on a chalkboard. In fact, the entire ESPN horde of talking heads has made this sport unwatchable.

The self-proclaimed "Worldwide Leader in Sports!" ... and THIS is the best they can do to present a fricking baseball game? C'MON, MAAAAAAN! Thumbs Down

John helps kids with their wishes and visits them in hospitals when they're sick, so I disagree.
