Writings and observations

Silly season

Part of what’s not missed around here, out of working in a newspaper newsroom: In those places, you have to deal with the loony toon stuff that tends to accumulate especially toward the end of campaign season.

From a column by James Wright, editor of the Twin Falls Times News:

I spent some time reading Barack Obama’s birth certificate Tuesday.

Why, you ask?

A gentleman from Rupert called me – twice – to ask why the Times-News wasn’t reporting the shocking news that Obama wasn’t even an American citizen, and thus cannot legally become president.

Either we weren’t paying attention or – start the scary music here – we must be part of the coverup, he intimated.
