So I got an email that I won a prize pack of free stuff from Mix 103-7 for, well, I don’t even remember. I think I took a survey a while back to rate the music they play online. Anyway, I drove all the way down to Midlothian to get my stuff, and here’s what was inside the bag (with their logo printed on it): A t-shirt, coffee mug, plastic cup, magnetic clip, and fridge magnet. I mean I can’t complain because it’s free stuff, but I drove to southside for a bag of promotional goodies so that I can sport items with their logo on them and help Cox Radio garner more listeners? Appears that way. Oh well, it was free!

So much truth it hurts. Not to mention it’s a rock in the rising stream that is inflation. Hell, even the Dollar Tree is $1.25 now. But the old standby Costco hot dog? Forever a buck fifty and I’m here for it.
While I realize this email was sent in error, it’s a fairly accurate look at the number of daily local stories that will be left if @LeeEntNews keeps laying off local journalists at the @RTDNEWS. It’s sad and pathetic.
I’m not saying I’m necessarily an Elon Musk fan, but could he do any worse as owner? It’s a social behemoth past its prime thanks to self-inflicted wounds but still enjoys an outsized social cachet since tweets are often referenced in the media–and it’s the de-facto town square.
