Ok, I heard back from 3 of the 4. Two agree with me and one actually agrees with you. Of course, he probably laughed as soon as he read Trinidad. Still, I sent it to people like me, so 1 out of 3 ain't bad. I'm not prepared to call it satire, let alone good satire, but if someone likes it then I will not stand in the way.

There are two primary categories of satire: 1)french satire, which can be good or completely over the top and 2) everything else.

I doubt he will be fired. The media is too busy being critical of the White House for its suggestion that Newsweek do more than simply retract the story. Go figure.
