Other than a potential lawsuit?

I've decided it would be best not to use the Omaha World-Herald as a fictive device. So which fictional paper should Stack K writer for?

It occurs to me that the two suggestions won't link themselves together,
so feel free to put a suggested two-paper merger in a comment.

I'm not at all sure I'd want to own or live in this house,
but I still love it.

Inherit the Wind (1960)

I realize "Dick York's best movie" isn't saying much, but _Inherit the Wind_ is Dick York's best movie, and one of Harry Morgan's better movies. I've seen it before, and don't remember crying, but this time, when the farmer who puts up the $5000 (after Drummond is held in contempt) says, "I'm John Stebbins" I essentially burst into tears. And I know there have been plenty of remakes, but I'd like another one. No offense to Spencer Tracy fans, but I think Jim Carrey could kick his ass in that role.

Strange as it may sound, my foremost criterion for judging a book is the ratio of typos in the second half to those in the first half. If the typos are randomly distributed, neither half of any book will ever contain more than two-thirds of the total. I mention this because the small number of typos in this book are spread evenly enough that I can say with certainty that Ms Cato's publisher and agent both read this novel as carefully as she herself wrote it. This is NOT a formulaic book that makes a sensational grab for your attention then struggles to keep you turning pages long enough to make the sale. This is an engaging work of steady quality.

Luckily, I have it on VHS,
although the ending won't be as much of a surprise the next time I watch it.

Mhm...

John Galt wants to destroy the myth of Robin Hood,
and he does this by going into the wilderness with a band of merry men,
who oppose high taxes and repressive government.

Yeah, mission accomplished.

Just your basic word to the wise here.

Don't say, "I can't do this any more!"
and then do it some more.
In technical terms,
that's reducing your ultiimatum to a penultimatum.

But then you happen down the wrong street one day while looking for something else;

turn left instead of right; enter an alleyway that you have never noticed before, even though you have passed the spot a hundred times; push at a door that stands a little ajar... and the City of London begins to give up its secrets. Some things, at least, about this ancient, storytelling labyrinth never change.
