Alice ---------- From: American Dialect Society To: Multiple recipients of list ADS Subject: Funny Names for Newspapers Date: Wednesday, November 08, 1995 2:12PM While I'm on the subject on Rush Limbaugh, Rush was angry at a liberal reporterette (caller's word) from the Atlanta Urinal/Constipation (Journal/Constitution). Our local paper, the Union-Recorder, is often dubbed the Onion Disorder. In West Chester, PA, I heard the Daily Local News called the Daily Lack of News.

The college is giving me a paperweight today for 15 years of service.
