The Waters Family Owes Me $1

I was curious about how The Park Cities News‘ La Fiesta de las Seis Banderas section compared to ours, so I tried to buy a copy on my way home today. My first stop was their box in front of Rafa’s.

The paper in the window was the May 2 edition, but I assumed that someone simply forgot to change out the display copy and that I would find a June 6 edition inside, so I deposited my 50 cents. When I opened the door, I was dismayed to see that the box was stuffed to the gills with papers, none of which was published this week. But there must have been copies of at least six different editions in there. I mean, if a newspaper box could ever be featured on an episode of Hoarders, it would be this one.

So then I headed over to the row of newspaper racks at the corner of Douglas and Lovers. The News‘ box there featured their May 16 edition in the window, but I took my chances and gave up another 50 cents. Again, I found a stack of weeks’ worth of newspapers, with a December edition sitting at the top of the heap.

What’s going on over there? Can anyone confirm that the Waters family published a newspaper this week?

    Does Park Cities News actually publish a whole new paper each week? Maybe they just slap on a different page 1 and leave the rest the same. It’s not like their dwindling readership of octogenarians and Klonopin-addled mommies would know the difference anyway.

    Those who live in glass houses….I get my paper mail delivered to the office and have only gotten one delivery within a week of edition date; usually get two at the same time 3 and 4 weeks late.

    @Avid Reader – you can thank your Post Office for the late delivery. Our papers are delivered to the main post office, before it opens, each and every Thursday. If you will call me with your address I can add it to epubwatch. Perhaps that will light a fire under your mail person and local post office.

    Dan, the June 13 edition exists. There’s a stack on the counter of the HP Library.
