So many words, so little to say

What do you do when you have an 800-word column due and have only 8 words worth of ideas?

Pad, pad, pad.

Some columnists have been known to write a column about having nothing to write a column about.

McBride's latest Waukesha Freeman column is in that vein, an obvious pad job. As she regales you with statistics about how many dog licenses are issued in the Town of Lisbon, it reminds you of a Senator reading the telephone book into the Congressional Record during a filibuster.

It would be hard to accept any pay for this "effort" with a clear conscience.

  1. There you go .... what a great example for young students to read and learn from .... having nothing to say has never prevented McBride from saying something.
