“Some say,” some said.

I love this story:

A Casper man claiming to be from the future, has been arrested for having too much to drink in the present.

The best reporting is local reporting. True fact.

      Aliens can’t get nutin’ right. They were suppose to visit donnie trumph & give him a ‘tour’ of a possible new MEGA YUGE golf course site in 2016. Oh, I see, I get it. Maybe not so stupid.

    So my lede (the topic sentence of the story) would be: “President Trump tweeted angrily today that a Wyoming man has spoiled the ‘Calm Before the Storm’ reveal he hinted at Thursday night.”

    Reminds me of a book I read in the ’80s – “Dwarf rapes Nun, Flees in UFO” and it was about writing the penumblate headline for a tabloid. Pretty funny book, imhr.
