i have a “Cincinnati Enquuirer ” newspaper from July 23rd , 1989 . this paper is mainly about the life of johnny bench after he passed away in 1983 . im courious as to if it is worth anything . its in pretty good condition considering its age . thank you .
Now, there are a few things to note about this inquiry.
* Newspapers are not worth anything. Come on, man, everyone knows that.
* Johnny Bench is still alive.
* Hang on a second. If Dear Reader actually has a newspaper from 1983 that has a story about Johnny Bench’s death, it probably is worth something.
This guy, who in his online submission form claims to be part of the Nazi Party of Central Massachusetts, really wants to read his local news. And exercise his right to free speech. And maaaaaybe burn a cross on the newspaper’s lawn.
XXXXXXX.com is not allowing me access. I will sue yuo cocksuckers and seek the ACLU’s blessing. Grow a pair you bunch of fucking bithces.
I don’t want to alarm anyone, but I think one of this newspaper’s readers is feral. Hide yer daughters!
Get this through your pointy skull: it’s FERAL, not WILD! There are no wild pigs anywhere in the Western Hemisphere! All pigs are exotic species, and when released into the wild they are FERAL, not WILD! Their behavior is wild, they live in the wild, but they are not WILD! Are you getting it now, you web-toed mouth-breathing high school drop-out?
P.S. Web-toed mouth-breathing high school drop-out is my new favorite insult. I encourage everyone to start using it immediately.
If you don’t like the Kentucky Derby, well, you best high-tail it out of Louisville for the next few weeks. This reader knows what I’m talking about:
Hey, hope there’s a story in tomorrow’s paper about the state of Uncle Mo’s stool. Yes it’s that time of year, when you morons overwhelm us with horse racing minutiae that only … well, maybe someone cares about it. Certainly not the average reader or subscriber.
Do we get excited about Derby? Of course. It’s awesome and fun and great for our city. But we don’t get excited about having the sports pages turn into the horse pages.
Can’t wait for more pictures of horses being walked around! Or of horses galloping! And really can’t wait for all the workout crap. And for 10 more stories about Uncle Mo and what his trainer and owner think his chances are!
I have been told by several residents in [town] of an article about my son in Saturday’s paper. I tried to buy a copy of the the paper and the whole town was sold out. S0 I tried to read it on this stupid web site and it isn’t here. So I guess I am just venting until I can get a copy on Tuesday. I Just wanted someone to know how bad your reporting sucks and the web page as well.
Sadly, the most astounding part of this submission is that hard copies of a daily newspaper were actually sold out. Sigh.
This letter actually ran in a daily newspaper.
To the editor:
For the past four nights of seven nights, I have had the darndest dream that scares me in afterthought. My wife was in need of an over-the-counter drug that helps her sleep so I went to the nearest drug store.
Upon arriving at the parking lot I was amazed to see 200-300 cars seeking parking spaces. Also, a number of people running in and out of the automatic doors. I parked on the next block, residential, and walked 5-6 blocks to the pharmacy. Inside the pharmacy were several dozen people screaming and shoving one another. There were so busy with yelling and cursing on another no one paid any attention to me as I approached the service counter. The young lady yelled at me, “If you do not have Russian or Chinese money, I cannot help you!”
Do dreams in numbers really come true?
Finally, someone has the real scoop on why Ken Griffey Jr. left Seattle for Cincinnati 10 years ago, and why he retired in the middle of this season with the Mariners.
Thought this would be an appropriate time to post this in light of tonight’s hype-tastic LeBron James circus on ESPN. This reader actually has it right: He’s just a human being, folks.

A little background: COACH leaves UNIVERSITY A for UNIVERSITY B. Newspaper covering UNIVERSITY A sometimes publishes stories about COACH’s goings-on at UNIVERSITY B. This, of course, is wholly unacceptable.
Please stop writing stories about COACH. I could care less. I dont know if one of your writers has a boner for UNIVERSITY B or COACH, but its annoying. How about more stories on the UNIVERSITY A football team and UNIVERSITY A’S COACH.
It is clear that the reporter designed the article to be slanted. And it was also slantedly designed with just the right amount of white space.
I should not be surprised but this is now at least the 3rd article on this issue and there has never been so much as a “veiled” attempt to talk to those whom deal with this issue every day and agree action should be taken to insure the safety of our families, as well as others. This article, although the least overtly slanted, is designed to draw attention of those whom would disagree with ANY proposed improvement and is designed to do nothing more then defeat this motion again.
I wonder if the writer stopped up at PLACE this week when this was written? Did she notice the road is down to less then 1 lane, severely rutted and washed out (as usual)? Did the writer research and find the accident report from the motorist that drove down hill this winter, flipped due to road iced over? You see, this miraculous gravel traction does not allow road to ever be efficiently plowed due to constant rutting. Therefore at night, snow left over that has slightly melted goes to ice. Sounds fun huh?
I am sure you don’t enjoy the prospect of not being able to get home, as road in winter is impossible to get up without a 4 wheel drive. Nice huh? We are concerned about trees but I need to drive a SUV to get home (we own a Prius, my mistake apparently)?
I do not mind the coverage, but enough with the slanted views and coverage, it is absolutely irresponsible and reckless. Press should be ashamed of the product.
Five listens to this voicemail, and still not sure what this is about. Something about Swamp Traveler’s News and Bill Gates ruining everything. Or not? Interpretations welcome!
