"Hello! I am bored today..."

Dateline: Tue 23 Oct 2007

"I am nice newspaper that would like to chat with you. Email me

at indystar.com because I am writing not from my personal email. If

you would like to see my pictures."

Thanks, indystar, but I would rather not see your pictures when you send your email come-ons re: the latest breaking news -- within the past hour or so, the hot tip was about the "New Indy Marathon" going down the tubes. News is fine, great, wonderful, but why do you torture me with:

Up-close and personal "before" images of some poor slob's horrible, awful teeth, next to the "after" shot: pearly whites. It is not even Halloween yet, and I can live without these ghoulish fangs. But you gotta make a buck, right? And so large, so overbearing?

The Sprint football player stampeding across the copy. Go, Sprint, away, and sin no more.

Then there's the big Discover ad, plus HH Gregg, plus whatever is coming next. This is not dignified. Thank goodness my favorite blogs are free of this money-making junk.

Guess what? I'm back.....
