Señor No Credit

Many years ago, when I was a young man, I went on a trip to Mexico. At that time, in the mid 1970's, I had no credit card to give the hotel upon check-in. I joined a group of new acquaintances, sitting around the pool, taking turns buying a round of drinks. When my turn came, the waiter came running back, shouting, Señor no credit! Señor no credit! Last evening I won The Morning Call blog contest in the Opinion classification. My name does not appear on the winner's chart published in today's paper. Señor no credit!

UPDATE: A revised, expanded chart was included in Saturday's paper, which lists all the winners, including myself.

MM -

Congratulations!

But did you really expect them to credit you with the victory when they don't even give you credit for the stories they lift from your blog?

Somehow the omission of your name seems consistent with Call policy.

Michael,

The MC is increasingly irrelevant as a news source. Its impact shrinks further every day.

Congratulations on your win. Your blog is good stuff!

Congratulations Mike,

What did you expect it's the Morning Call. Shame it's our only city paper, it is a disgraceful rag. Keep up the good work.

Michael,
Saturday is the newspaper's lowest-circulated edition of the week.
