Quest for Speed

Have you ever seen this maniac on TV? He's a British news anchorman for CNN.
I once saw a segment where Richard Quest was literally bouncing of the walls ( and columns and railings) of the locale where they were filming...the cameraman was obviously having to struggle just to keep up with Quest's manic skipping was the sort of performance that would be impossible to satirize, it was so frenzied and intense.
It was funny and entertaining, albeit a bit disturbing to witness, having seen such behavior in real-life far too many times.

"That dude is way wired", I thought, "he's into some heavy shit."

Quest just got busted for meth in NYC. He's lucky that he's in a position to get help, but I doubt if he'll ever be as much fun to watch again.

I've never seen the guy but since he is in television and has money I'm sure this will have little affect on his career. I just hope he gets the help he needs.

Yeah, it's like those hilarious smiling monkeys from Giligans Island. Funny! ...right up until you realize that those are the faces a monkey makes when it's in pain and that the fantastic Hollywood trick to make them smile was to rub chili oil inside their mouths. The burning! OH THE BURNING!!!
