The Slice

A lapsed SR tradition

I'm pretty sure I have mentioned this before.

But I think about it at this time of year.

For a few years, there was an SR newsroom tradition that featured an editor handing out commemorative mugs. These mugs were adorned with boldface allusions to some of the year's big news stories.

The problem with that is a lot of A1 news stories do not have festive themes. References to murders and disasters made for a rather odd holiday season cup o' cheer.

OK, I realize the intent was to acknowledge the work that went into our coverage of these stories. Nobody was celebrating tragedy and mayhem.

Still. The mugs were weird.

We no longer do that.

But what 2013 local news story would you rather not see mentioned on a year-end mug?
