Lori Gilbert devours entire LENS page, and Brian McCoy

We're pretty sure we've made our utter contempt for Lori Gilbert's writing known. She hasn't really given us much to post about because she left the Sports page earlier this year (Thank you oh merciful God). Since she left the realm of sports and moved to the entertainment/LENS section we've pretty much found her easily ignorable since all she does now is write soft features about shit nobody cares about. Then we turned to today's LENS section, which can be summed up in 3 words. Just fucking ridiculous.

(Almost as ridiculous as the fact that the 3 stories that grace the front of the LENS section aren't all available on the Entertainment homepage of recordnet.com.)

In the past we've bitched about the Record's overreliance on AP stories, but if a full page of Lori Gilbert is the result, then please give us another bland run down of the shitty new CW shows. Tell us about garage sale season again. Have Tony Sauro tell us a story about how he once did coke with Stills and Nash, but not David Crosby because he was totally demolishing some groupie tail. Fuck, sell the whole page as ad space. The stories she wrote are pretty much ad copy for some bad play anyway. Quit falling alseep at the wheel McCoy. Just because you're moving on doesn't mean you get to phone it in. And yes, subjecting us to a full page of that crap is phoning it in.
