The Bulletin goes warm and fuzzy

Hay mate? Can you point me to Rigobertos?

Hay mate, can you point me to Rigobertos?

The big news in Bend today (according to The Bulletin) was about a wallaby who had gone missing and was found after a five day Juniper Berry Bender (or maybe he was caught up at the west side Rigoberto’s hop thru). Mind you this is no ordinary wallaby – it’s a west-side wallaby – which are apparently cuter and more news worthy (it made the front page lead story).

Never mind the story about our public transportation system losing its funding – I mean is that really more important that a cute fuzzy naughty little wallaby? Bad wallaby, trying to escape your west-side domicile of non-clothesline hangers! So cute – you just want to squeeeeeeze, hug, and watch him hop – you can’t get mad at the wallaby. Granted the story would have been better if it happened in Washington – I see the headline now: “Wandering wallaby wescuded in Walla Walla”.  Oh Bulletin – how you make me smile.
