Many A Truth Told in Jest

Chris Wyrick, one of our senior associates, is fond of that line as one of his touchstones.

The new episode of Mayne Street -- Hotel -- is the epitome of the saying. In one comedy bit, you get the full impact of the digital world, how it effects celebrity.

"This is a sad commentary on your generation," Mayne deadpans.

I'd make this required viewing in the next go-round of media training and social networking awareness.

I've noted how Mayne Street shows the Long Tail way to content -- and the detail work within this episode is magic. Stop frame on the faux websites that have dug up the past of Kenny's make believe producer and ESPN executive.
