I know who won't be winning an award for editing. In today's edition of the Lincoln Journal Star, they did a story on Roger Welch. Well, the map they had to indicate where Dannebrog is located also noted the town on "Paul" last I looked, there is no such place in Nebraska. Now, there is a St. Paul because, well, I was born there or at least that is what the old birth certificate says, but apparently the Lincoln Journal Star refuses to acknowledge its existence. Or, they have horrible editors. You decide.

The TV list of winners was summarized in an item in last week's print edition of the City Weekly.

Poster 3:

Actually there is a village by the name of Paul in Nebraska. It sits between Nebraska City and Auburn. I think the population can't be more than 25 though. I've had the pleasure (?) of driving through there several times.

I'm poster five and to clarify for those who might be misinformed, the Journal-Star still missed the boat by naming St. Paul as Paul.

No, the LJS needs to do a better job instead of insulting their readership on a daily basis.

Maybe you need a geography lesson. Knucklehead is a perfect moniker. Get to know your state idiot.

Knucklehead, talk about the pot calling the kettle black here. If you had any semblance of a life, you wouldn't be posting on here would you. (Or allowing the voices in the ether to agitate you so much. 7:27 must have struck some raw nerve there) I freely admit, I have no life, that's why I'm here; to live vicariously through the comments of posters like 7:27. World without end. Amen.
