KANSAS CITY STAR PUBLISHES THINNEST SUNDAY EDITION IN DECADES!!!
Confession . . . TKC buys the Sunday paper at a local gas station because of a lady friend who has a dog that will never be trained.
What stood out . . .
TODAY'S PAPER WAS THE LIGHTEST SUNDAY EDITION KANSAS CITY HAS WITNESSED FROM THE (FADING) STAR IN MORE THAN A GENERATION!!!
Worse still, the big price tag ALMOST makes an investment in doggie pads worthwhile . . . Given that no creature associated with this blog will ever learn about anything close to discipline.
Not joking, a pee pad is the only practical use I've seen for the paper given that uses books for potty time entertainment . . . Forgive the horrific visual on that one . . . But I digress . . .
Of course the news in today's edition was old and coupons are for stuff I'm not gonna buy anyhoo . . . Nevertheless, regular subscribers are paying big bucks for a product that's getting more sparse every week.
