The Last to Know?

It's going to be a light blog today.

The Gap Fire is all but out, but you wouldn't know it from looking at the News-Press' website.

It figures, the last one to join the party is also the last to leave.

Anyone care to volunteer to give them the word?

Shouldn't there be a statute of limitations on how long one can be referred to as a "fiancé?"

It's been two years and counting in Arthur and Wendy's case and still no wedding date.

Fiancés, like milk containers, ought to have expiration dates. This fiancé business has gotten kind of stale.

I think it's time that Arthur got demoted back to live-in-lover status.

Independent columnist Barney Brantingham reported that when he asked News-Press attorney Barry Cappello for his reaction to the NLRB's decision to appeal a federal judge's ruling denying reinstatement of the fired News-Press reporters, he got this response:

Actually we will be interested to see if all the media darlings that have fawned over the Teamsters and the NLRB will actually comment on how inappropriate it is for the government and union to file an appeal.

Barry, you'll have to pry it from our cold, dead lips.
