In the Honorable Mention category, we have selected 5 possible new names for the management of the (Observer) to consider during the difficult name search process:
1) The Baldwin Blowhard
2) Mountain Views Whoopie Cushion
3) The Sierra Madre Suppressor
4) Scagtown Chameleon Chronicle
5) Foothill Follies
The First Runner Up selection was a particularly difficult choice. We considered this matter into the wee early hours of the morning, drinking and arguing and, I hate having to admit to this, fist fights were a part of the decision making process as well. It was an ugly brawl, and if you heard ambulance sirens last night, you now know why. In the end, our less-than-consensus choice was:
The Not In My Driveway News
But we do have a winner. And the person who created this wonderful new masthead name will take away the Grand Prize, a full 30 count box of some of the most outre' and unlistenable CDs it has ever been my misfortune to hear. Congratulations go to Pasta for this remarkable entry ...
Thanks to all who participated in this important contest. There will be more of this sort of thing in the weeks and months ahead, so keep checking in with the Sierra Madre Tattler, where news is inevitable and the prizes not all that good.
Have a safe and happy New Year's, and we'll see you in 2009!
