‘Snide Remarks’ Classic: ‘Ten Little Idiots’

The official 10th anniversary of “Snide Remarks” was last week, but that doesn’t mean we’re through commemorating it with a “Snide Remarks” Classic every Wednesday. No sir or madam! We’ll keep it up until 2007 is over, and maybe even into 2008, although probably not, since we’ll have run out of good columns worth revisiting by then.

This week’s nugget is “Ten Little Idiots,” from Oct. 4, 2004. It tells of a trip I made to Las Vegas to see my friends perform in a community theater play. It mentions my friends Pants, Mrs. Pants, and Luscious Malone, all of whom have different names in real life. The noms de column are part of their mystique!
