As a Wisconsinite I particularly like the early years (the "O" started out here): "Gov Proclaims November Masturbation Month" and "UW Cuts Funding Of Coed Naked Sports" (Wasn't "Coed Naked Sports" a t-shirt? What kind of a publication plagiarizes a t-shirt?). I can see taking this book out from the library, but why would someone buy it, I hear you asking. Because, the more you look the more you find. We read this in fine print: "Beatles reunion tour ends after chair mishap," for example, and realize we really live a kind of non-sequitor existence that goes beyond cheap SNL sarcasm. A world the "serious" media ever admits. Truth! Can we take it? "War, Come On, Let's Have One," "Clever bumper Stickers Resolve Abortion Issue," "Pope Forgives Molested Children" and "Nursery Home Has '96 Die-Off."
Maybe Speed Stick isn't available in Neapolitan yet and Christ has not returned to the NBA "...chipping in 13 points, 4 assists and wowing fans with his trademark `Ascension Dunk.'" But the reality is main-stream daily newspapers are dropping like horse turds and The Onion is getting the red-carpet treatment. Perhaps we should just accept that the..."Last Literate Person On Earth Is Dead At 98." But who cares. Or in the wisdom of our childhood, "What Me Worry?" Hey, we don't have to hide from our parents anymore. Meanwhile my favorites are "Pier1 Issues Formal Apology For Rattan Death March" and "Disembodied Voice In Elevator Wants To Know Way to San Jose." They make at least as much sense as anything else does today.

Also, This collection does not allow you to read more of the stories that might be intriguing to you. If the headline is not a punch in the gut, there is a lack of a narrative to build your story because it is only front pages. I would recommend it as a coffee-table book and a way to pass an idle Sunday afternoon. Perhaps you would be better served waiting for the paperback copy or venturing down to your local library to check this out.
They have offered to refund my shipping and handling since the order took so long to reach me. I feel they didn't need to do this, so I was surprised by this token.
I wouild not hesitate to order from them again.
I am a satisifed customer.
