Why satire is on life support, chapter 683

Mac Thomason pokes fun at the proposed new ABC drama about the CDC.

At this rate, they're going to run out of government agencies and departments pretty soon.

2003: Customs

2004: D.O.E.
2005: Postmaster!
2006: Joe Collins, FDA Inspector
2007: SSA Theatre
2008: Price Supports

I hate to break it to you, Mac, but there have already been two made-for-TV movies about heroic US Postal Inspectors. I give you The Inspectors and its cleverly titled sequel Inspectors 2: A Shred of Evidence, both starring Louis Gossett. My local post office has a poster for Inspectors 2 in it, which I may have to liberate one of these days as it is sure to be a hot item on Ebay in the future.

I'm still waiting for a show about a spunky young female paralegal who specializes in immigration law...
