The drive by media is biased, local print media is left
leaning, and I believe I’ve uncovered an insidious plot to get
us God loving, gun toting conservatives to give up. Not our
beliefs, just where we get our news.
Case in point: you probably know newspapers are using a
different ink than in the papers of my youth. But as an affront
to us older subscribers I think they’re making the print smaller,
and thus harder, for us bifocal wearing oldfarts to read.
Yesterday as I perused our local paper I was confused by an
ad on an inside page. The wife noticed my confusion and asked
what the problem was. But whe I looked at the ad again, the
ad changed! I could have sworn the ad was for Naked Pizza.
That could turn into every parents nightmare if a child saw
it and asked what a naked pizza is. But when I looked again
the print had changed to Baked Pasta! A hologram? Magic? An
oldfart who hadn’t had enough coffee yet to comprehend?
So I told the wife, hey I’m only 66 years old and I shouldn’t
be having these kinds of problems yet. She explained that I
can’t hear out of one ear, my knee goes out more than I do, my
back constantly hurts, and my hands cramp up. So what is so bad
about one more little problem?
It doesn’t seem bad to a person younger in better health but
once we reach a certain age we want less, not more glitches.
At this rate I’ll be making myself a cane soon. So I am
once again going to man up and admit the paper has once
more changed to a smaller print size.
Enjoy our Tuesday. Now I go in search of some leftover pizza
to fill a need. At least I can still remember where we keep
