As I mentioned a couple of days ago, there’s a pretty good chance that the local paper, the New Britain Herald, will close.Â On the faculty e-mail list, one or two faculty members have speculated about having the campus paper step into the breach.
Here’s a sampling of the local news our students could cover:
- “City man held for alleged sexual assault.”
- From last week: “Prostitution sting nets 20 in city’s downtown” Notable: the oldest john was 77! the address of the sting: Beaver Street! (How did they ever know where to look?)
- From the SAME DAY as the report on the prostitution sting: “No porn charge for lawsuit filer who lived below pedophilia suspects.”Â Be sure to click that link for gruesome details about the police allegedly ripping a catheter out of a man, tearing [!] his penis.
The recruiting pitch almost writes itself!
