January 10th, 1999
A reporter from one of those news magazines you see on the grocery store check out line dropped me some info. I promised him I wouldn't say which particular tabloid since he's not suppose to share stories but it's one of the majors. Yeah, you may call it tabloid journalism but I call it an encyclopedia of the weird. The hell with 24 hour cable news or the 30 minute round up of the world you see every night at 6:30 on the tube. Tabloid, muck-raking, journalism is where it is at!
Anyway he likes the stuff and wanted to drop me a line about a story he did recently on skunk ape sightings down around Lake Ocheechobee. The Ocheechobee Ogre it's called. A monster with big feet, a hairy face and a bad smell. (hence the name skunk) Once again I'm hot on the trail of news as it happens.
Gotta go and take Mr. Crowley for a walk.
