“In 1991, the phrase ‘they just don’t get it’ became a popular way of describing senators’ reaction to sexual violence.

  1. Just in. No Wendsday this week. Officials in Columbia, PA have suspended Wednesday for this week due to lack of interest and a shortage of funds. As of now, there is no promise when it will return. Some citizens are upset but most won’t notice according to sources.

  2. Update Columbia: Bourough Officals Defend the Elimination of Wednesday.

    Earlier today bourough officals from Columbia canceled Wednesday this week and discussed a permanent dan. According to mayor Lutz “Wednesday is just too damned hard to spell and that had a lot to do with it being that day.” Council Chair Murphy added, “no one seems too excited on Wednesday and it has always been a slow revenue day for the borough. I don’t think we should let a couple of internet trolls dictate what the days of the week are. These are the same hyper conservative folks who insist on correct spelling, punctuation, and syntax. No one can stop Us from forging ahead to make Columbia what it was on the past.”

    Borough manager, Dillinger, when contacted said, “this is a complete surprise to me. Perhaps we could find a corporate sponcer and drop the first D and the second E. That’s one way we might reach a compromise and save a day whose value is questionable.” She added, “Our code officers are looking closely at the situation to see if there any violations and how they might generate a bit of income from this unfortunate situation. I apologize to those who thought they could avoid any unpleasant commitments they had today. We are working hard to resolve the situation.”
