The Paper Chase was on at 7th and Montana this morning as a Local Newshound, known among insiders as "the Paper Pusher," made the scene.  Known for poring through the New York and Los Angeles newspapers each morning -- and leaving them outside, spread across his table when he leaves -- the Paper Pusher gives new meaning to the term Litter Bug, especially on windy mornings.  However, he's also doing a Good Deed ... if only we could find someone interested in reading his used newspapers before they scatter to the winds.  I know what you're thinking:  "This sounds like a job for "The Notorious Newspaper Thief!"  The only problem is, we scared the Newspaper Thief away for good last month by placing a "Wanted" poster -- complete with photos of him stealing newspapers from Our Favorite Starbucks -- on his Getaway Bike.  Now I feel guilty.  Like the Irresponsible Nincompoop who introduced Killer Bees to the Americas, I've upset a Delicate Ecosystem.  Just don't tell the Environmental Protection Agency ...!

Well...I don't know what to say! I have an idea though. What if you were to supply a rock to weigh it down with, a pair of sizzers to cut out cartoons and the occasional articles...and the paper would no longer be out of the loop as it were...?...It's a thought anyway...Missed you by the way while I was gone...Much Love...Kittie

Maybe you could tape another note to his bike saying "Come back, we miss you" some global warming in a good way, LOL

LOL  Nah... don't feel guilty... Next make a poster of the 'pusher' and say 'Don't forget to put your papers back inside!  No one likes a litter bug!'  Problem solved!

be well,
