Funny Papers Part IV – Sacramento News & Review

Click for Full Article.The cover story on this week’s free Sacramento News & Review is Sacto Blogo, and it turns out Asparagus Pee has gotten a pretty nice write up. (Read it all, but they used my story for the close, so please scroll out to the end.)

They called me “Smary-pants blogger Chris Benson,” then went on to say that Asparagus Pee is “…a reliably clever, good-natured look at science and politics.”

I’ll take that.

Special thanks to Mayagirl over at Postcards from Sacramento for making me aware of this article. Thanks Maya!

P.S. With this recent little bit of local notoriety, I’m coming to understand the meaning of journalistic phrases like “though he never responded to e-mail requests for an interview” – if I’d thought for one second that one of the 600-800 spams I deleted that day was SN&R wanting to talk to me about my blog, do you think I might have granted the interview? (Uh-huh.)
