At least yesterday's did.
S-R reader Cynthia Laird called and reported that the big “Hey, hey Paula” headline on yesterday's features section made her start hearing a certain song. And she kept hearing it. And hearing it.
“I thought I would lose my mind,” she said.
I'm not sure who wrote that headline. But I have a hunch it was an EWU grad who hadn't even been born when the song in question was a hit in 1963.
Just part of our sing-along service.
I suppose it's because I saw a few minutes of “The Wizard of Oz” the other night. That and all the election talk.
But I can't stop hearing the line “As mayor of the Munchkin city…”
Over and over, in that diminutive actor's exact inflection.
It's one thing to get a song stuck in your head.
But “As mayor of the Munchkin city”?
I'm totally on the level about this. But I would understand if you felt you had to verify it legally.
