Ken Burns Documents The Office

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Thank goodness documentarian Ken Burns has shifted his focus away from serious (read: B-O-R-I-N-G) topics like the Civil War, baseball and jazz and shifted it towards topics of true national importance such as: who should Jim date on The Office?

(Personally, I think the choice obvious. Pam is beige and spineless. She deserves that big, dumb loser ex-fiancee of hers. Not only is Karen 10 times hotter than Pam, Karen actually WANTS to be with Jim. Let's face it, Jim can do better than Pam. Oh wait, he already has.)
