So I decided it was time I threw some fresh paint on my site. I completely redesigned it with a new logo and header image, complete new feel, and a much cleaner layout that really pops. If you get updates via the RSS feed, come by and check it out, and let me know what you think! I’d like to thank my 75+ daily loyal readers for, well, reading! It’s pretty cool knowing that people you’ve never met before have an interest in keeping up with what you write and the happenings in your life.
So as I was driving by the Dollar Tree the other day I couldn’t help but wonder how you ask a friend who works there how much they make. If everything’s a dollar (hopefully excluding salaries), do they measure it in items per hour? [insert “ba dum chhh” comedic sound effect here] Here’s my pointless Photoshop creation for this week:
The Dairy Bar in Scott's Addition closes after 76 years; Tang & Biscuit to take over with new concept - https://bit.ly/3wCo80T #rvadine
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.
