That's a good one. I once tried to convince a fellow lawyer-friend of mine that the phrase "Pennsylvania Constitution" should be conflated to "the Pennstitution." I did not succeed.

But "beerific" and "flabtastic" still have a fighting chance.

You have to be more specific, or they still wont know who you are calling

Just tell them you're looking for a Hugh Jass, and they'll page him for ya.

That is unlikey. This is the BOULDER Daily Camera. Boulder is Ithaca West, Berkeley East. The only sensible coverage of anything is on the sports page.

Any front page writer would be fired for adopting a FREEPERISM.

If this same attitude had infected the sports page, the stomping by the Broncos of the pitiful Raiders (sorry, I'm still enjoying the game too much) would have been reported like the paper reports Bush's approval numbers: something like--"Broncos Misfire on Four Second Half Drives." True, but they were ahead 31-7.

I thought and thought about putting the thread in breaking news. But realized it would be interpreted by many as a series violation of board policy. I might have gotten a hugh number of folks lecturing me about the sanctity of breaking news. So I didn't.
