If You Regularly Watch PBS NewsHour…

…you might see a Slowpoke strip in an upcoming segment about digital culture and the book Hamlet’s Blackberry. I don’t know exactly when the segment is scheduled to appear, and I’m too busy these days to watch much TV, so if you happen to spot it, please let me know. (Hopefully it will also be posted on their website, which I will monitor; I’m not 100% sure they’re using the comic, but it sounded probable.)

    Now for a discussion of this week’s top stories with Mark Shields and David Brooks. What did you think of the cartoon? David?

    Brooks: I think it presages a new development in suburban cultural life — Blackberry BoBos. This could be bad for Obama in November.

    Shields: Well, I-I-I wouldn’t say it’s a victory for Republicans, but it-it-it certainly spells trouble for the administration’s message discipline. At least Obama doesn’t use an iPhone.

    All: chortle.
