Today's Word—Mourning Editors

All due respect…

“I often share the story of the small-town editor who finally managed to drink himself to death. Finding that he was destitute, his cronies set out to collect money for a decent burial. Seeing the town banker, a frequent target of the paper’s editorials, they asked, ‘Sir, would you contribute a dollar to bury our editor?’ The banker pulled out a ten and snapped, ‘Here! Bury ten of ’em — and good riddance!’”
