  1. New Flash!!!

    Doug Bratland has alerted me to this Breaking Story:

    They’re holding the Second Annual “Defeat of Groundhog Day” Celebration, Saturday, January 31, at the Upstairs Rueb ‘n’ Stein…

    …in Downtown Northfield.

    For more information, find the red, white and blue posters with the picture of a rather chunky groundhog over the word “DEFEAT”.

    Hmmm…we’ve got DJJD, now it’s DGHD???
