Newspapers accounts of
- a "Parents Council" listserv war where one woman called the leaders "purveyors of evil" and "inebriated beavers"
- a Humane Society report on a "tormented guinea pig," where the reporting officer had to rescue said pig from a child trying to groom and dress it like a doll
- a nearby restaurant closed by the Health Inspector because of a "gross unsanitary occurrence"
I guess this is the fun side of newspapers no longer having a lot of real reporters to provide stories. I guess that doesn't cheer me up so much after all.
