From the Mailbag: Who Reads What

The following came in via email ... thought you might all enjoy.

Who Reads What

1. The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country.

2. The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the country.

3. The New York Times is read by people who think they should run the
country and who are very good at crossword puzzles.

4. USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the country
but don't really understand The New York Times. They do, however, like
their statistics shown in pie charts.

5. The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn't mind running the
country, if they could find the time -- and if they didn't have to leave
Southern California to do it.

6. The Boston Globe is read by people whose parents used to run the
country and did a poor job of it, thank you very much.

7. The New York Post is read by people who don't care who is running the
country as long as they do something really scandalous, preferably while

8. The Miami Herald is read by people who are running another country,
but need the baseball scores.

9. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is read by people who want only the score
of the Cardinals game. They drink Budweiser, Budweiser, and --
wait a minute -- what was the question?

10. The San Francisco Chronicle is read by people who aren't sure if
there is a country or that anyone is running it; but if so, they oppose
all that they stand for. There are occasional exceptions if the leaders
are handicapped minority feminist atheist dwarfs who also happen to be
illegal aliens from any other country or galaxy, provided of course,
that they are not Republicans.

11. The National Enquirer is read by people trapped in line at the grocery

12. The Seattle Times is read by people who have recently caught a fish
and need something to wrap it in. 

So, the question of the day?

Many years ago, there was a family friend who said she read the National Enquirer because she knew everything in it was the truth. She pretty much considered everything else propaganda.

Just about now you are thinking she was a kook. Quite the opposite. She was from an extremely wealthy family with political ties at the very top.

She passed away sometime ago. But I am certain if she were alive today, she'd say, "See. I told you."

Just some food for thought.
