Reading the Morning Paper

Now I know all of you out there think I am just a pretty face, but I want to state that I am no slouch in the intelligence department either. Unbeknownst to many people, I can read the newspaper! I grew up reading the venerable New York Times; however, since we have moved, I am only able to access the Ketchikan Daily News. This has caused a marked decrease in my fundamental knowledge of world politics and world economics; and my views have swung from liberalist to marked conservatist (Alaska is a red state). I have beseeched my parents to order a subscription to the New York Times . . . but they have refused. Another example of how humans are trying to keep us pugs down!
Mommy -- please flip to the business section; I need to check how my stocks are doing

Daddy, why are you laughing? Haven't you seen a pug read a newspaper before?

Hmmm, this global warming thing is getting worse and worse . . .

You are very cute, Frances. Reading the paper is very good for you. That's why I don't do it. hahaha

Francis, we need to band together and get you the New York Times - stat! Your political prowess is faltering (read: going down the tubes!) in that red state. I mean you moved to the place that Ted Stevens (and, okay, to be fair, Mike Gravel) come from. Must be the long periods of darkness!

Don't worry, I don't think you're crazy, girl.
