Small Town News

Small town newspapers crack me up. In the midst of the BP
oiltastrophe, the Houma, Louisiana paper found time to run a feature
that should have been called Local Woman Has Blog. I
got the link from my friend Kevin and I kept waiting for there to be
some sort of point to the piece but in the end it’s about some nice
woman who writes a mommy blog who has fallen behind in her scrap
booking. Bloggers are, apparently, everywhere; perhaps even next door…

That’s small town news, Terrebonne Parish style, for today.

    Well, it’s a bit of a step away from such stories as “Smiths and local cousins gather for Sunday dinner”, always a staple of small town news.
    Heartwarming.

    muckraking is so 1900’s.

    If they spell everything right, they’re a couple steps up in professionalism from a couple of the small-town papers around here.
