What To Do When Your Newspaper Falls Short

What To Do When Your Newspaper Falls Short

After searching through the newspaper, more than once this morning, for the most important section, I found it wasn’t there, so I rustled through the pages a forth time and had H do the same.

There was the front section, carrying everything from China’s falling space station to a candidate claiming election tampering in a nearby city election.

The Local and State section discussed storm damage study and mentioned Destin as the third best beach listed in Southern Living Magazine, along with a drowning, and fraud conspiracy in a town farther west.

The sports section…talked spots, and contained the classified ads and financial pages, but not the most important page. Nope. It wasn’t there.

I was not happy and said as much. I’m not going to pay as much as I do for a daily paper and be shortchanged.

I debated over calling the office and giving them a piece of my mind. Would there even be anyone there to answer my call on a Saturday morning? Would they rush me a full paper to my door containing all sections, or would they print an extra edition to be delivered this afternoon? I could only hope.

Seems like I wasn’t the only caller. They’d already had numerous calls this morning. Glad to know I’m not sitting by myself in the humorous section of the newspaper. The comic section sorta offsets the rest of the newspaper which tends to carry mostly depressing articles from around the world.

Of course, the newspaper office said it wasn’t their fault, saying it happened when they sent it off to print, and then blamed it on the next guy.

I wonder if they will include today’s comics in tomorrow’s edition. What a glorious day that would be if we would get a double dose of comics!

Here’s Zits for today in case you are addicted to the comic section and your paper also fell short.

Now I’m off to google the rest of my daily comics so I won’t be in withdrawal. Have a great day!

This is a very informative article. I had 32 apps that had access to my Facebook content. Some of them I didn’t even recognize. I never login to anything using my Facebook account.

Facebook doesn’t make it easy to delete your account – Here’s How to do it

Please also read the following  from Mike Murphy  on Quartz Media LLC:

If you’ve been on Facebook for a while, you’ve probably installed games or given sites permission to log into your Facebook account. You may even use Facebook to log into services like Spotify, Netflix, or Tinder.

But if you’ve been following the news around Cambridge Analytica, the data consultancy firm hired by the Donald Trump campaign for the 2016 US election that harvested the data of up to 50 million Facebook users without their permission through data collected from third-party apps, you may want to know how to make sure that something similar isn’t happening to you.

Here’s what you need to do
