Attack of the pink squirrels
October 27, 2008 - Bill Ackerbauer
We get a lot of random stuff here in the newsroom, only a small percentage of which actually ends up in the paper.
For lack of another place to put them, I've posted here a couple of photos that landed in our Virtual Newsroom recently.
One is a photo of a white red (pink?) squirrel taken by William Kollar of Caroga Lake. I'm not sure if this is an albino squirrel, or if it's just getting a jump on changing colors with the seasons (do squirrels do that?). For all I know, it rolled itself in flour right before Mr. Kollar grabbed his camera ...
The second shot is a cute photo of one of our younger readers, 20-month-old Hunter Rose of Fultonville. Apparently the reading glasses belong to his mom, Heather, who sent us the picture. It won't be long before he's holding The Leader right-side up and writing insightful letters to the editor, I'm sure.
Finally, in the spirit of cutesy photos of kids that they will probably find embarassing by the time they reach junior high, I offer a shot of my own that shows the concern for high-caliber community journalism runs in the family.
If you happen to have a snapshot that falls into the categories of cute, weird or quirky, or some other category that doesn't normally appear in print, feel free to send it to me in care of "Bill's Broadsides" at firstname.lastname@example.org. I could always use a good chuckle.
