text quoted from the article/site

quote [ When an article is just a few hundred words like this one, you probably have a few minutes to read it. When you open up an article thinking it’s a few hundred and it’s actually several thousand, your time might be a bit more limited. ]

Alan Abel Has Died, For Real This Time

quote [ Long before The Onion began printing farcical news articles, long before the Yes Men enacted their first culture-jamming political pranks, there was Alan Abel. A former jazz drummer and stand-up comic who was later a writer, campus lecturer and filmmaker, Mr. Abel was best known as a perennial public gadfly, a self-appointed calling that combined the verbal pyrotechnics of a 19th-century flimflam man with acute 20th-century media savvy. ]
