A tribute to and a lament for Marshall McLuhan continues. If he had lived Marshall would have been 100 on July 21, 2011. Join me in the countdown to his centennial, and an exploration of more of his observations on the way media work in the electric age in which we live.
Marshall McLuhan (1969, age 58).Â Blast the thrills of victory and the agonies of defeat!
â€śBlast The Sports Page pantheon of pickled gods and archetypes.â€ť
Me (March, 2011, age 58).Â Hard to disagree with Marshall on this one.
Is there any writing more irritatingÂ than theÂ prose that appears in the sports pages of a daily newspaper?Â Â Here is a close competitor, TV sports commentary.
Cordially, Marshall and Me
