Nobody wants that crap-lousy fishrap. Newspapers are dead. One can get all the news one wants on the internet. In today's world on a Sinday (sic) morning it's get the breakfast burrito, get a hot cup of coffee, sit down on the La-Z-Boy, and curl up with the laptop. Just watch out that the hot sauce doesn't squirt out of the burrito's sphincter and end up on your keyboard. Egads!!!

It's time to stop killing trees. Let's find a good way to monetize the web pages so that we can make all our news electronic.

I bid $25.00 cash, and that's my final offer.

When you turn on your computer, consider that it doesn't run on air. Electricity in this country is generated roughly half by coal and half by petroleum. Which is it, trees or fossil fuel? With any luck, maybe Mr. Pickens can help us find an alternative.

Russl,

Are you serious? Trees or fossils, huh?

Dang.

I better stop blowing into the side of my laptop...I thought that little fan I could see way up inside there was for me to power the thing. With all the hot air I generate, I was planning to save a lot of money.

Oh, well. That explains why my posts at the Reader are so nonsensical. It's a computer error.

You say I should power it with trees instead?

How?

Should I use the USB slot, or see if I can get the DVD/Combo drive to shred the stems and seeds into smaller pieces?

What about using those fossils for fuel. How old should they be, in hundreds of millions of years? Do I have to crumble them up before putting them into the 1294 hole, or should I just force them in? Does it matter if they're fossilized fauna or flora, or does a trilobite generate the same power as a betulaceae?

These new-fangled computer things just confuse me, Russl...so I appreciate your advice. You can reach me through my AOL account...

Thank you,

Fred

If the LA Times or OC Register are smart, they will put out competetive San Diego County editions and buy the UT's news talent. That is more-or-less what happened in Citizen Kane, yes? :)
