HISTORICAL MUSINGS

In a donated scrapbook, we discovered old newspaper clippings that the donor found worth keeping due to their content or ones she found amusing. One is titled "Little Boy's Opinion of 'the Editor'". It apparently was originally published in the "Panhandle Publisher". I offer two paragraphs from the article: "If the editor makes mistakes, folks say he ought to be hung; but if the doctor makes mistakes he buries them and people don't say nothing because they can't read or write Latin. When the editor makes mistakes there is a big lawsuit, and swearing, and a big fuss, but if the doctor makes one, there is a funeral, cut flowers, and perfect silence. And his final observation: If the doctor goes to see another man's wife, he charges the man for the visit, but if the editor goes, he gets a charge of buckshot."
