Have you seen this man before?


I just found out that a high school buddy of mine, Dave Karandish, is a candidate on the new Apprentice show with Martha Stewart. This show just became must-see, in part because he's a good man and brilliant and tenacious and deserves such an opportunity, but also (and I cannot stress this enough) he is just going to be That Entertaining.

Karandish was always a magnet for the craziest things in high school. There was the dentist's X-ray malfunction that almost killed him. The currency loophole scheme. The act of arson he witnessed in a Grandpa's Retail Store, replete with a senile greeter yelping repeatedly, "There's a fire!" (This story, incidentally, our English teacher accused him of fabricating. Then the next day, he brought in the news clipping.) And I still don't know what the heck happened with the convent and the guard dogs.

And boy, if any person was made for reality TV (in a wholesome and unselfconscious sense), it was David. He's wackier than Ian, folks. Trust me.

I'm going to watch every episode he's on, and for once, I heartily encourage all of you to do the same.
