Finally! An Issue of the Local Rag Worth, Reading

Yes, dear reader, today's Local Rag, aka the Yellowwich Time, has *finally* come up with a front page that 1) has some news worth knowing, and 2) has outstanding visual appeal. To see what your scribe means, click on the link below:

Who knew? A Miss Teen USA contender from little ol' Greenwich? And one who represents immigrants to boot? What a great story!

Turns out Miss Connecticut Teen USA came here from the Ukraine 14 years ago, at the tender age of 3. Bilingual in English and Russian, Olga will be entering her senior year at Greenwich High School (Go Big Red!) in a month or so. But not before she heads out to Pasadena, CA, for the pageant finals.

"Being an immigrant, [I] had to have the attitude of, 'You can do this.' I want to show other girls that you can." Your scribe thinks that with that kind of spunk, as well as her Honor Roll brains and self-evident comeliness, Olga has an excellent shot at taking the top spot. Stay tuned for further details!

Yes, very inspiring for many, to be sure.

Of course, there's *another* very interesting article on the front page today, albeit not quite as inspirational...

Hi, Bob!

Yes, I am well aware...I was going to segue into it and then thought that that would be a disservice to Ms. Litvinenko, and so bit my tongue.

I have, however, been making discreet inquiries on the subject, and thus hope to have more to report in the near future. Stay tuned!
