E & P: "His fifteen minutes just won't expire."

"The contemporary definition of CELEBRITY (is) a person who is known for his well-knownness." --Daniel J. Boorstin, The Image, A Guide to Pseudo-Events in America (1962)

Cut to: 2005

Editor & Publisher is more shocked than suprised. If all it takes is sheer moxie, and the (pardon the reckless pun) HighViz-ability, and the craving for the story to go around and around and around, then what they hey, maybe Jeff Gannon was right. [you think so?]

" 'Jeff Gannon', uninvited to White House Correspondents Dinner, heads to Bill Maher's HBO show."

My OPINION and advice: this is nothing new. Notoriety is what makes up the cult of celebrity, period. Credibility? No need. What Joe S. needs to do is get ahold of a DVD of that old chestnut "Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?" with Tony Randall and Jayne Mansfield. He will see a lot of 'James Guckert's' aspirations in it. It is a doozy! After all, below is really proof that "Jeff" may be here for a while, as will Paris Hilton, as was Zsa Zsa Gabor before her:
