Newspaper Kids Helping to Keep It Together These Vacation Weeks

Ooookkkkk, Jael has asked us, the Newspaper Boys and Girls, International (NBBGI),  to write some blogs during these vacation weeks when she, Taryn (our webmaster for I.E. Plexus), and other zoweee important Earth Enders take much needed vacation rests.  Our gig starts in ten days.  So its time to rehearse.

        The kids asked me, John J. Jr., senior internet newspaper delivery person here in the U.S.,  to write summaries for them.  Soooo here goes.   Let’s start with our usual NBBGI intro:  HURRY!  HURRY! HURRY!  Get your latest news from around the world.  You don’t want to miss a day! Soooo . . .

We hope to hear from Ida B. Wells, IV, where ever she hangs her hat in the next two weeks, especially if news breaks about the European Union.  And she promises to break down the new Libor scandal so that even us kids can get it. . . . it sounds like a disease to me though.

Even while she tries to get some rest, Sarah Newsworthy will be gettin’ the diggs on power outage problems in this country.  Her notes say she’ll follow-up on foreign owners of our power companies, on million dollar payment and retirement packages for power company executives, and on activists groups urging the federal government to buy out power companies.  Wow! Bet that’ll be a hot story.

Doc Ad Versery sent us kids a note:  “As soon as I finish this research on whether or not epidemics of incurable gonorrhea are on the way or is this just a ruse by drug companies to force governments to buy their products––I’m outta here for three weeks.  Contact Maleeke or Butterman if problems come up.”

Ally I. Feermeno is just as grumpy as ever.  When I phoned her for an update, she says:  “I ain’t goin no wheres.  What better place could I hang out than Japan where there are record rains, floods, radiation leaks, earthquakes, volcanoes, and daily protest marches against nuclear power.  Jael says she wants me to come home and investigate nuclear power in the U.S.  And of course I balked.  Ha! Ha!

Rev. Repriestly called with the info that, in Jael’s absence, she is going to send in a story on angels.  And John, Jude, and the prayer teams say they’s gonna tell about new prayer partners and new things to pray about.

But, a’course youse know the kids who report on animals are my biggest nagging problem.  Sissy says that if I  don’t put their story on killer spiders on the net, she’s gonna sic one on me.  And the other animal kids were cheering her on.

I never heard of such! I’m askin’ the Rev. to make those kids study more Bible verse cards.  Remember what the Bible says:  “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22: 6).”

Meanwhile me and all my fellow news delivery kids will keep doin’ our jobs of bringin’ urgent news from around the world to Earth End bloggers.  So even if some folks take needed vacations, we’ll still be on the job!
