    The guy has guts, hope he didn’t mess up his career too badly.

  2. Logophile says:

    That sounds like a news anchor who MIGHT be worth watching.
    Should have known you’d find him!
    What the heck is he does over THERE??

  3. Infinitesimal says:

    Well he better watch out, if they are letting 12 year olds o the news, looks like GIRL may be in line for his job in about 5 years.

    just kidding just kidding, I KNOW he is really 14.

    PS that grey box is still there. What is up with that? the hidden text is driving me crazy, it’s like… top shelf porn or something. I NEED to read it.

    dang! i may need to move to duluth just so i can enjoy this guy! i tell you what, i’ll bring our weather guy who does some of the most bizarre and unscripted forecasts ever. i think he’d be a good match for your anchor.

  5. Em says:

    WOW! I was completely taken in by your story. What a guy! So rare to find talent and real charisma like that. In the photo, he looks young enough to be going to the high school prom! And yet his maturity far outstretches his youthful looks. I hope you get to watch him for many years to come!

  6. Lee says:

    The cardboard cut out news is no place for real human stories, unless they happened to have a camera and mike. What was that guy thinking?

  7. Balou says:

    You crack me up! (Easter egg humor) Has Duluth TV actually snagged a good one? I’ll have to check him out next time I’m at the in-laws. You gave me great visuals! Inspired me…

    Hammer–Edward remains the apple of Duluth’s eye. Okay, maybe just my eye. But still.

    Logophile–He’s warming hearts over here. Okay, maybe just mine. But still.

    Infini–Heehee. My dream come true would be Girl and Edward co-anchoring in about 5 years. Yea, he’s about 14. Oh, and I have no idea about the grey box…I got all worried when I typed “reporter-cum-anchor,” thinking it would be again wrongly construed as something pornographic.

    Lime–I would luurve to see your weather guy. We have one good weathe dude in this town; he brings intelligence to his dumn comedic comments, which is such a rarity.

    Em–Well, he’s kind of a youngster still, but it’s been fun to watch him grow up.

    Lee–It’s that kind of golden heart…the willingness to write his own script…that makes him MY EDWARD.

    Balou–Your drawing made my day. I hooted and wished again you’d drawn one of my tongue coming out of my husband’s nostril.

  9. oreneta says:

    OK, I might even watch the news if I could get a newscaster like this.

  10. Jazz says:

    Damn, he looks 13… Are you sure he can legally be an anchor?

  11. choochoo says:

    Yikes, you have a ten year old anchorman over there? Now I feel like I’m underachieving *sigh*

  12. furiousBall says:

    I would watch that guy with a tenacity unforeseen by mankind. Duluth, you stay classy…

  13. Mother of Invention says:

    Wow, a person with a real heart and feelings and everything! They’d better hang on to him!
    (“If they only had a brain!!”)

  14. Diana says:

    I would watch the news if I could watch someone like him. Guess I’ll either have to quit my job and leave my family and move up there or just keep not watching the horrible news down here.

    Banter gives me hives.

  15. david santos says:

    Thanks for you work Have a good week.

  16. Jill says:

    Doesn’t look like Edward has hit puberty yet. Wonder if he’ll maintain his spunky attitude after a couple of years of acne and heartache…

  17. Claire says:

    I wonder what ever made Edward want to work in Duluth? I guess he considers it to be dues paying time. He needs a job in cali!

  18. Dorky Dad says:

    You last three minutes longer with television newscasts than I do. I can’t stand them. I’ve ruined too many TVs with bricks to allow myself to watch anymore.

  19. SaM-GiRL says:

    wow…..he sounds like a guy with balls…. nice blog. had fun reading it.

  20. Glamourpuss says:

    He looks about twelve…

    But yes, I am always astounded at how utterly vacuous US ‘news’ broadcasts are.

    How do you ever know what’s really going on in the world?


  21. ldbug says:

    Good post!!! I had so much fun reading it and wish we had our own Edward here..*sigh* 🙂

  22. actonbell says:

    Edward sounds fabulous. I hope you get to keep him:)
    Great post!

  23. velvet girl says:

    He sounds like someone to tune into the local broadcast for! I can’t stand, I repeat, can’t stand TV news so I get my news from Yahoo News and The Economist (talk about the short list, eh?).

    Sounds like a great guy. Is it just me or does the picture look like they photoshopped a twelve year old’s head onto a grown man’s body? Or is it like David Byrne’s suit in Stop Making Sense?

  24. Princess Pointful says:

    Wow, a news anchor who stands out from the bunch. Lovely :).

    Your introductory comments reminded me of the surest sign of a slow day…

    “Well, Linda, a local businessman got a very special visitor today.. a monkey!”

  25. Top cat says:

    What a great story jocelyn and told wonderfully by none other than YOU!

  26. frannie says:

    good for Edward! I am now a member of the fan club— even though I don’t get to watch him.

  27. Diesel says:

    The difference between me and Edward is that I would do that just to f*ck with Todd. I’d make the whole thing up if I had to.

    Great story, as always, Jocelyn. And not that you need me to tell you, but you are, of course, a finalist in my caption contest.

  28. heartinsanfrancisco says:

    I love this post!! You are a writing marvel.

    And Edward is adorable. I love a man who can’t keep his mouth shut. Do you think he needs to be adopted while he finishes school?

    The lady he was talking about probably wasn’t offended by his rather gauche comment about somebody having it worse. She told him her story, and I’d think she was thrilled to be mentioned by her hero.

    So, you’re going to be getting up earlier now, eh?
