a) Murray Slaughter of Minneapolis’ WJM TV. Pretty solid on the job, but his deep, unrequited feelings for co-worker Mary Richards are bound to cause a problem in the workplace, if not at home.

b) Murray Chass of the New York Times. Floated the theory the Dodgers and MLB were ready to pounce on the Red Sox for tampering with J.D. Drew, when according to no shortage of other sources, no investigation nor charges were in the offing. Feeding The Monster’s Seth Mnookin has been repeatedly kicking Chass’ tail on this matter, and even Jayson Blair thinks there’s something screwy about this.

c) Murray Head. No journalism experience to speak of, though his 1984 hit “One Night In Bangkok” remains on the CSTB list of Songs That Should Never Be Performed In Public Or Private.
