Joe McQuaid's Publisher's Notes: My favorite things from one week this summer
I had not thought of it before, but apparently there are different kinds.
My favorite errors from last week’s newspapers (and this may just give aid and comfort to the “idiot’’ questioner), included our citing the rare date of “March 36’’ in one news story (I think it was a Schmoozeday); and in another reporting that some roads were “barely impassable’’ in one New Hampshire town not long ago.
My favorite quote from last week was one I read in a wonderful little book titled “One Summer, America 1927.’’
“Three generations of imbeciles are enough.’’
The ladies were great. They don’t swear (or perhaps they were just trying not to offend my delicate sensibilities). They bring coffee and blueberry muffins.
They are all very encouraging to each other, as opposed to the guys, who say things like, “oh, gee, that’s too bad!’’ with sarcasm dripping from every word.
I’d be honored.
