I could not sleep last night and got up too early to look at the newspapers on line. I was reading at the dining room table when I heard the knock knock. It was around 4:30. It was the paperboy. I doubt they are still called paperboys, but whatever. Since we only get the paper 3 days a week this makes perfect sense for it to be a once in a while phenomenon. It probably has to hit just right and weigh a bit more than usual.
I still have no idea about the old guy with the shovel.
Funny of the day, from the letters to the editor, Detroit Free Press: This person strongly stressed "the need to eliminate the emissions of carbonated gasses into the atmosphere". I don't know which is worse, that someone wrote and sent it in to the paper or that it was printed without any notes about putting Coca Cola out of business.
