Good morning,

After having read all the other sections of this morning's paper, I settled in with second cup of coffee and started in on the entertainment section.

There, in the middle of that section was a half-page article giving a couple-by-couple analysis of Monday's Dancing With the Stars episode, ranking the couples from first to worst. I thought, this is a little too detailed to have been written by our local paper's writers; fine journalists though they are. A quick glance at the bottom of the article shows that it was reprinted from the Washington Post.

Maybe some of your local papers have reprinted it as well. See? Even media that covers the most important topics of the day can have fun every once in a while.

Just so you know, yes I did watch DWTS on Monday from start to finish, and kept score. I should get another job. This retirement thing means I have way too much time on my hands.
