What a difference a change in format makes: last week, when OC's evilest woman in history, Barbara Coe, died, I wrote a truthful obituary that spared no punches. That was for this infernal rag; for my KCRW-FM 89.9 "Orange County Line" commentary, I had to be a little bit more, um, respectful. But that didn't mean I couldn't scoff at Coe's supposed Sioux heritage or slip in a Reconquista there, so the change ultimately wasn't THAT different.
