The good old days.

I was rummaging through a couple of old files today, and came across this two-page tabloid spread from April, 2002 that reminded me how much I miss The Weekly World News.

There is something of a sad story behind my keeping this story, but it's really not too important now. Everyone involved enjoyed the article when it came out.

And those of us who were/are writers lamented the fact that we didn't work for the WWN...



Since you can't read it, the caption to the photo at the lower left is worth repeating:

"President Bush congratulates Bill Depp, after awarding him a medal for being one of the first sightless people to use a guide duck."

What a great thing to keep. I've never heard of seeing eye ducks.

Betty -- now that the WWN is gone, you'll never hear about 'em again.

Maybe I've just had too much wine??? Was that a seeing eye duck that I just saw?

I think you're quacking up, Missi....

That is a pretty quacky story :)

I think you should write bad poetry about the seeing eye duck as an analogy for an ex girlfriend.

It'll be a challenge for you as a writer and entertainment for the bored rest of us.

Come on...
