like, gonesville...








I stumbled across this blog awhile back, and I do enjoy checking it out every few nights. Larry Harnisch takes articles from the old Los Angeles Daily Mirror from fifty years back--tomorrow's blog entry would be for 21 April 1958--and he takes the headline and rewrites the article and even does a follow-up on, say, if the kid whose parents killed themselves actually did go to college. That's not Harnisch in the photo, it's 1950s columnist Matt Weinstock, with one happening haircut. The LA Times website links you to the Daily Mirror blog, as well as a Homicide blog that, assumedly, updates by the hour....Wayne

I'd have loved writing for a rag like that. Just make that shit up!

Now I want to know. Did the kid go to college?
