BalugaJoe: it will be charged to your bill discreetly.

Barricaded Gunman: Ugh... I remember being annoyed by his replacement of any variation on the name of the United States with USA in bold. I also hated the way he consistently referred to Mikhail Gorbachev as "Gorby." fark but I hate USA TODAY.
exvaxman: Good Riddance. I never wish death on anyone, but with my dealings with him, my hatred of what he did to journalism, there is going to be an impromptu party/cookout tomorrow.
John Buck 41: Is yours a good online handle in this day and age?
Barricaded Gunman: John Buck 41: Is yours a good online handle in this day and age?Not really, no. But back in '05 there was a hostage situation that was all over the news, and I was in need of a Fark handle, and I'd been hearing the phrase "barricaded gunman" all day long, so I typed it in on a whim and it was available.And yes, I sometimes cringe in threads like today's, or when someone assumes I'm some sort of ITG or gun nut or something. But what am I gonna do, start over? Pretend that the last 8+ years of bon mots and witty repartee never happened? I don't think so, Mr Buck. I don't think so.

UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: I met him at the Marin County McPaper facility. Seemed nice enough, but he didn't spend much time with us ink-stained wretches.
jimpoz: BalugaJoe: it will be charged to your bill discreetly.I've been in hotels where they charge it to your bill, but you can decline it and they won't charge you. Yet for some reason the cost of the room isn't 75¢ cheaper on Saturday or Sunday when McPaper isn't published.
bmihura: I generally don't like printed news on paper. USA Today was pretty entertaining though, R.I.P. good publisher!
bixpchiphead: As Tom Leykis used to say"If you have to pay for USA Today, you're not trying hard enough"
