Readers in the Trash

I went swimming this morning and noticed on entering the fitness center that the stack of Readers was gone a mere two days after having been put there. Then I noticed a half dozen Readers stuffed in the trash across the hallway.

As My pointed column about abortion led off the Reader my paranoia kicked in. I figured that I’d offended someone enough so that they decided to censor me. At least that’s what I wanted to imagine. I pulled them out of the trash and put them back on the reading rack.

I swam with more vigor than usual afterwards.
