February 1st 8:54pm - Uncle = Entrepreneur

In his childhood, in an early entrepreneurial effort, one of my uncles instigated a newspaper business. He roamed the neighborhood, collected and compiled news, employed a dated copier machine as printer, and sold each issue for five to ten cents. His journalistic endeavors ended with a neighbor’s complaint owing to a headline that read, “Is the Stork on the Way?” followed by, “Looks as if Mrs. ??? is having a baby soon, or is she just putting on weight?”
She was just gaining weight.
