a few years back, and as part of the act, we would read authentic newspaper
broadsides from that time period. BORRRRRRRING! "News" back then consisted
of advertisements about how many cows Mr. Andrews of Lincoln County bought
from the market, or the specifications of a newly launched U.S. Navy vessel.
True to the letter, but absolutely dull as well. It's personal opinion
that makes news, as Denzel Washington called it in TRAINING DAY, "bull****,
but very INTERESTING bull****."
