Editor Wanted

Our local newspaper, like yours is going through a rough patch. Not a job secure anywhere in the house. While the news people are doing their bit, the back of the house folks are doing theirs, like offering your paper, while you vacation, to local schools, instead of forgoing the revenue. Who knows they might not be here when you return.

So I wonder how many English teachers turned down the offer of receiving the paper after this headline from Sunday's paper?

Perhaps it was a conceited clot?

Ha ha! I am doing research this summer and a drug company has given us funding to study DVT & PE. This made me laugh because it is so true!

Toad, I saw your comment over on ADG's blog about "not being far behind" him in his decision to hang up his cleats. I HOPE you reconsider. This blog is absolutely wonderful.

I'm not going anywhere.

I'm still laughing about James' comment.

It was a relief to hear you're not going anywhere. Mornings around here begin with coffee and Toad. I can bring a smile to my face in seconds just remembering the photo you posted of the man taking a picture of a group of women in burkas. That's just one instance where you had me laughing out loud.

Plus, you love dogs. Thank you, Toad.

Gail, I will likely end up in hell for that photo. I'm glad you enjoyed it, it will make the trip worthwhile.

This is what we are talking about:

Clots can be so cruel. Particularly the monied, good-looking ones.

You could compile several books' worth of such headlines, and others just as silly.

One of my all-time favorites, from an Indian paper long ago: "Chinese Generals Fly Back to Front".
