Gazz April One

So, if you haven't seen it, the Charleston Gazette did an April Fool's Day section with the Gazz, my section of the paper. I'd love to send you to a link, but after some debate, we didn't run the gag stories online.

I could type them here, but I'm lazy.

Anyway, if you want to see them (and they're not too shabby, if I say so myself) you should pick up a copy of Thursday's Charleston Gazette.

On a separate note, one story didn't make it. I wrote up a piece about how Festivall was getting Gene Rayburn to be their grand marshal. Rayburn, for those of you who remember, was the host of "The Match Game" in the 1970s and was kind of this leering game show guy. My grandmother adored "The Match Game."

Rayburn has been dead for about ten years ago.

Anyway, I thought it turned out fine. It was solid satire, but not everybody was feeling it.

Not running my Gene Rayburn piece was probably for the best.

Anyway, if you feel so inclined, spend a couple of quarters and check out the Gazz today. Let me know what you think.
