Apparently we were not slipping into the warm embrace of a public-radio-induced coma last night when we heard Marketplace
host Kai Ryssdal promo a story on the South Butt lawsuit
"You weren't dreaming," confirms Clayton attorney Albert Watkins
, who says the segment will air this evening on Marketplace
(6 - 6:30 on St. Louis Public Radio 90.7 FM). Watkins is representing Mizzou student Jimmy Winkelmann
, owner of apparel line South Butt in a trademark suit
brought by North Face.
Says the florid-tongued Watkins
of tonight's nationally-syndicated interview on NPR:
"It's pretty damn exciting when the pinnacle of the elite news world has deemed you worthy of coverage."
