Words to live by

I have a new addition to my newsroom cubicle courtesy of the Go! section’s anti-debt columnist. Her headline Thursday: “Readers are full of wonderful ideas.”

Well, sometimes they are. I’ve clipped the headline and pinned it to the gray felt wall near other inspirational decor. Among them: My “What page are you on?” poster; a 1970s comic book ad in which O.J. Simpson hawks Dingo boots; and a teaser from the Onion that reads “Man Has Derogatory Nickname For Every Neighboring Town.”

    I used to have one on my wall that was a Dilbert cartoon which had Dilbert telling Wally, “I admire your ability to get paid for what you do.”

    That Daily Onion title is quite interesting. LOL

    Slight correction to your Friday column: Barry Williams played Greg Brady. The poor man has played that character so much that I’m sure he dreamed his name was really Greg. LOL

    [Dang! I wonder if I wrote down the name wrong, or if I transcribed a Prog error? Either way, I should have caught it; I was hooked on that show as a kid. Sigh. -- DA]

    What this?! Writer Man made an error?! Could be time for a sidekick: Proofreader Boy. He could follow behind you carrying a giant eraser, saying “Holy Doublecheck, Writer Man!”

    Just a thought…

    On another note, I hope the weather clears by tomorrow. Maybe they could play that Barbra Streisand classic about not raining on parades as your theme song. But in any case, it should be a memorable day. Enjoy it to the fullest!

    [Thank you! And hey, I'm equal opportunity: Can't I have Proofreader Girl? -- DA]
