It’s not so much the news that interests me. I’m a crossword puzzle hound. My paper has two crosswords a day and that’s the first thing I turn to and do. AND, yes, I live life on the edge, I do them in pen. I hate, hate the sound of pencil on newspaper- it’s worse to me than nails on a chalkbord, but not as bad as someone sharpening a knife on a whetstone- yeah, you can call me weird if you want. I embrace it.
After the crosswords are done, I do the word jumble and then read the comics with my favorite being MUTTS. I love those critters.
So, the newspaper is more like a game-paper to me. And that’s all right with me.
