I have sat as a peer in an office of salesmen dependent upon leads to survive. I know their rough language, use it myself, and have no quarrel with it.

And I respect the abilities of Peter Falk, Joe Mantegna and the group of professionals appearing with them in "Glengarry Glen Ross."

But if that short, thin exercise I saw on Dec. 11 is deserving of a Pulitzer, I'm Tennessee Williams.

There is more substance, humor, and pathos in a weekly television series.

Have judges and hypesters formed an alliance?
