This just in! Here's a front-page headline of our local newspaper:
"No One Immune from Job Loss"
Thought I would share that with you in case you had been living under a rock and didn't realize that any one of us could be affected by the rise in unemployment. I am so glad I pay for my local newspaper's subscription, otherwise I might have remained ignorant of this vital piece of information. As if I need a reminder.
After reading this post, my husband pointed out some other front-page articles that you might enjoy. One headline read:
"Water...it may be good for you!"
Of course, in a town where there are boil orders every week, that may be front page news after all. We sure live the quiet life don't we?
Another great series of articles featured a hog farm dispute between the farmers and the neighbors who said it stank. The neighbors want to shut it down and they are still in court trying to figure this one out. Seriously. They have called in experts to testify whether it smells bad enough to be a hardship on the neighbors. Personally, I just don't even see how there is a dispute here. Hogs stink. How can you argue with that?
Here's a good headline for those of you who adhere to normal grammar and spelling rules:
"New Fedex in Town Employees About 100 Workers"
I think I actually get more amusement from the bad writing and ridiculous stories than I do news. But, as there are few entertainment options here, I guess it is worth it.
