READER DIGESTS ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Extra, Extra, read all about it: Local Man Caught in Newspaper Recycling Scam! Eyes were popping and stomachs were turning at 7th and Montana this morning as an Anonymous Newshound made the scene, intent on borrowing a copy of The New York Times. I knew he meant business from the minute he walked in the door. He rushed, like a man on a mission, to the newspaper sales display, grabbed a newspaper and raced into the bathroom. He emerged five minutes and 12 seconds later, renewed, refreshed and ready to get on with his day. And that's exactly what he did. He spent a few minutes finishing up the newspaper, then placed it back in the sales bin and left ... without even ordering a cup of coffee. If there's any poetic justice in this world, the Notorious Neighborhood Newspaper Thief will strike before anyone else touches that paper ...!
