Submitted to Monkey Man’s Sunday 160 in which you are challenged to use exactly 160 characters, including spaces: http://petzoldspracticalprose.blogspot.com/

I found last Tuesday’s newspaper—soggy, torn—
half-buried in a corner by the geraniums.
The crisis predicted on page one
had slipped, unfulfilled,
into obscurity.

    Oh I Love that! Would that more predicted crises
    slipped, unfulfilled,
    into obscurity.

    Great 160!

    It’s the crises that sell papers, unfortunately. We seem to need them…thank goodness they often don’t amount to any more than a bit of black ink on a page!

    this is why I rarely read, watch, or listen to the news. They should call it opinion instead of news. Nice 160!

    If half of the predictions made by Chicken Little, Reporter-at-Large, ever came true, we’d have all been gone long ago.

    Nice one, Victoria.
