Editor's Note - Farewell Sweet Prince
Thursday, August 18, 2005
It’s been awhile, dear readers, since I have given you a personal message. So I just though I’d take this chance to check in.
Things are going well for the NewsBlog 5000 staff. Alice Humbees is out of rehab. James Skippenofsky has returned from his treasure hunting expedition with Governor Bob Taft and was fortunate enough not to get caught up in the indictments. And despite winning the prestigious citywide pole dancing championship, Bunny Delicious has just informed me that despite her fame, she will continue in her current capacity.
On a personal note, it is time to bid farewell to my own mentor, perhaps the greatest journalist of our time, Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, who took his own life, while on the phone, mid conversation, while working on a story about 911, after intimating to a friend that he feared for his life. This Saturday, Dr. Thompson’s remains will dispersed from 34 different fireworks shells.
