A true, semi-killing frost at last greated us this morning. Club Desvelado enjoyed Mark Singer's New Yorker piece on Itasca, home of the Wampus Cats, and now relying on the high school's Paw Print Press as its sole printed source of news, for lack of its old newspaper, which is said to have used Linotype for production right up to near the end. The vaunted fact-checking of the New Yorker falls short these days, evidently, since we read of the Nissan Ultima, were told that Itasca is in central Texas, and "learned" that people say "you-all" in those parts! The article was excellent, though, in capturing the spirit of small-town life.
