I also encourage you to go for it.
+1. Go long, Megan C. Or link off to your own blog if you want to go essay length.
I am not a frequent commenter as PAS because I favour the long-form in writing and don’t wish to clog up the columnage unduly.
Lolz. That doesn't seem to constrain anyone else :-)
I know that Trotter is not Mr Popular around these parts but I did appreciate him challenging Deborah Coddington on her facile notion of 'objective' journalism and her belief that the world-views of journalists are not already shaped and constrained by their backgrounds and education--and, as Chris himself declared, 'that ugly word----class"
I have no major quibble with Trotter on this occasion - it's the idea that he gets called if those particular people are unavailable. He had a good laugh at that notion himself, to his credit.

I gather he had a swift couple of glasses of wine afterwards too :-)

Do you realise how difficult it is NOT to make a smutty joke in response to that sentence? Huh? Do you?
(Megan, I too am down with awesome long posts.)

Thoughtful long worthwhile post vs 140 character drivel ... such a hard choice really.
Seriously I can read and I'm happy to read your posts any time whatever length you feel you need. Besides I'm not sure I saw an "appropriate post length" sign anywhere.
Huh? Do you?
Yes I still do. ;-)

Yup, you can always skip the long posts with a single eye movement, if it burns.
Dearest darlingest Megan - you have things of value to say, and I, for one, don't mind how long it takes you to say them, as long as you do. I would suggest from all the comments above mine that no-one else does, either.

Pitch a "making of" doco to Brian - seems the behind the scenes of this ep would have been great telly

Don't be silly. There's a delightful doo-dad on the mouse called a scroll wheel, and I'll use it if you're being tiresomely verbose.
Could Trotter try not being a man-tronising douche-bag?
No. It's Trotter. Genetic impossibility.
Indeed, some of them were simply unable to make it. But others were offered the opportunity and cried off. So he wasn’t entirely wrong.
Yeah, I know a couple of the women who were asked, and there's various reasons they couldn't. Deborah has written about hers.
