Is that why there are no Daily Posts at the South end of town?

Explains lots about the paper. And many of the stories written in it.

Do not leave your drugs laying around. Other people you work with are stealing them from you.
Just look at the paper?

This is sad. Not sure why it is newsworthy to us, though

I know Brian and he is a stand-up guy. Frankly, even if he was under the influence of a controlled substance, can ya blame him? These are pretty dark times for newspaper journalists...especially those taking a positions they're overqualified for just to make a buck.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
