Today I was one of a panel of authors in the Arkansas Democrat Gazette's Style section. What I learned from the exercise: do NOT try to be funny when speaking to journalists. Due to size requirements and whatnot, they (or their editors) will edit out either the set-up or the punch line of any joke, leaving you standing there with your dick hanging out. It's not their fault, honestly. But still. When speaking to journalists, keep it short and say exactly what you mean.
