Here’s just a quickie blog entry about a news item from 1955.
It’s from an old column called “Inside Out” by Harry Fulton, appearing March 10 in the Long Beach, CA, The Independent.
Vern Anthony is a man who reads his newspaper with a critical eye.
“The slug dug a crease in her scalp three inches long and a quarter-inch deep,” the news story reported. “Officers said if she had been wearing high heels she would have been killed”
Said Vern: “Yes, but if she’d been barefoot she’d never even been hit.”
I like the way he thinks.
