Again ... Slow News Day?

Previously, this effort to blow the lid off towel theft in the Mid-Cities was my favorite Startlegram story. Well, move over towels because there's a new king of lame news in town -- UNDERWEAR THEFT!

What really makes this story is the locator map. Not only did someone take the time to report and write this story, someone filled out a request with the art department, a designer put together the locator map and a copy editor checked it, all to tell you -- YOU! Because it's all about YOU THE READER! -- about a $17 underwear theft from a Dollar General. Now that's the kind of commitment to news that I want from my daily newspaper.
