GonzoKaleidescope Breaks New Wind Over Changing Landscape of American Journalism

GonzoPublicRelations executive honcho Mack Trucks has announced a new feature in that wildly popular blog known as "gonzopr."

The column is entitled GonzoKaleidescope and will feature "a potpourri" of nonsense and whimsey from gonzopr's extensive archive dating back to when the earth cooled and the dinosaurs died.

"As you might expect, we have unearthed quite a collection of correspondence and memorabilia," says Trucks. "That Gonzo saved everything, I swear. His attic looked like something out of a William Faulkner novel."

Gonzo, in a portrait of the artist as a young man (above), was a crack baseball player in his day. Playing for A-1 Jewelers in the local little league, Gonzo retired 27 straight batters while fanning 14 in a no-hit, no-run game at Montavilla Park in East Portland in summer, 1963.

"You won't believe the sheer volume of data and graphic material that we uncovered," notes Trucks. "It's the motherload."
