Not one cent for tribute
From this morning’s Waukesha Freeman Sound Off:
I found James Wigderson’s (April 28) article to be very presumptuous, presumptuous that he thought it was worth 50 cents. After reading his column the past few years, I shake my head and say, “And The Freeman pays for this?” The column has very little substance and always the same ending. It’s like hearing 30 totally different jokes but they all have the exact same punchline. Never objective, I feel he could use some journalism classes and also research skills. … For those who don’t get it, the book was an effort on behalf of the mayor to get people working together for the common good of our city. Evidently, the police chief just didn’t get the main idea.

To be fair on the question, the newspaper costs 50 cents. The Waukesha Freeman pays me a little more than that. And I get free pencils.
But the Sound Off reminds me of my favorite knock-knock joke.
Orange you glad I wrote about the mayor again?
