What I'm Beating TLP With: 5/30/10
I've got to give him credit, the Paperboy held down the fort pretty well when I was off handling some things and cruising down the Eisenhower Interstate System last month. In the meantime, he's seemed to grasp the art of writing punchy headlines that don't contain words like "dick" or "motherfucker" (he's not a "motherfucker" sort of person and besides, that's my job). It's almost as if he was meant to do this for a living or something. Anyway, out of respect for all he's done for me lately and in general, this is going to be a light beating. Just because I'm a nice girl. Then again, I'm convinced he's into it so maybe I should try harder next week.
But I digress. It's been a pretty dull week all things considered. There was the Joe Sestak BS and of course the Top Kill failure in the Gulf, not to mention the fact that the economy is still in the shitter but since when does that make any difference at all? What else did TLP miss while he was off trying to come up with smart ass headlines?
