Titles of articles I saved long ago

Here are some of the things I thought important enough to clip out of the newspaper and put in a scrapbook, circa 2000 - 2006:

  • "11th century England online with posting of 'Domesday'"
  • "Blame her British accent on stroke"
  • "Hey, grads: Get a life"
  • "Folded $20 bill bears eerie images of 9/11 mayhem; get the picture?"
  • "Annual Bartlett Celebration four mile run a success"
  • "Fans dig deep for roots music, boosting 'O Brother' soundtrack"
  • "Spider-Man shatters box office records"
  • "Go ahead, take a walk on the wild side of swamp"
  • "For the time of your life, have that crisis now"
  • "Cher to perform at Pyramid March 4 on farewell tour; 1st solo show here"
  • "Success no fluke, and that's sweet for Sugar Ray: Pop-rock band stays aloft after 1997 hit 'Fly'"
  • "Population density facts"
  • "'Brokeback' may not play well in 'burbs"
  • "Names in the news: Randy Quaid"
  • This quote from Dick Cheney: "I'm the guy who pulled the trigger and shot my friend."
  • And this quote from Dwight Schrute: "I never smile if I can help it. Showing one's teeth is a submission signal to primates. When someone smiles at me, all I see is a chimpanzee begging for its life."

Yeah, that probably covers most of the things I deemed important back then...

    1. I have them all in a scrapbook that has a lot of empty pages left...I've kept it for now because I can probably find a good use for the rest of the scrapbook! But flipping through them, yeah, I really didn't have any urge to actually re-read any of these articles. :)
