The Slice

This is not a suggestion, by the way

Mentioned to a colleague heading out to cover the Newt Gingrich appearance that he might make national news if he tackled the candidate during his speech.

"National brief," is how I put it.

Might be a career-ender though, I hastened to add.

But then I got to wondering. As far as I know, the reporter in question is in good standing with his bosses. So maybe they would just suspend him for a couple of months and then bring him back on board after he had a chance to contemplate the error of his ways and repent.

"With back pay," he suggested.

Boy, sometimes you can really tell when someone has been covering the city of Spokane for a while.
