Sacramento Bee beats New York Times
I get automatic alerts from the New York Times and the Sacramento Bee. Who knows why I never signed up to get them from my 'hometown' newspaper, the Dallas Morning News? Guess this really is a temporary 'home' for me.
So tonight I get an alert from the Sacramento Bee at 5:44PM alerting me to the fact that Senator Craig is going to resign. At 6:30PM, the New York Times alerts me to the fact that "Senator Craig plans to resign." I am struck by the fact that the Sacramento Bee has beaten the New York Times by 45 minutes.
But my uncle-in-law is called Larry Craig and knowing how wide someone who has the same name as my uncle-in-law opens their legs when they sit down in a men's room is all too much for me. I am just thrilled he is going to resign and that it is confirmed by two newspapers so maybe, just maybe, we can get back to hearing about the real news. I wonder how many people were killed in Iraq today or how the families of the soldiers killed in Iraq yesterday are going to sustain such a devastating loss.
