Northfield's Finest

Our fair city's biweekly paper, the Northfield News, has been on a hot streak lately, reporting on the craziness that's engulfed the town this summer. Wednesday's paper had a low light, though, in the form of a vapid interview by the paper's sports editor with last' year's star male athlete at Northfield High. This was the first exchange in the interview, published smack in the middle of the front page of the sports section:

Q: "You were a three-sport athlete at NHS, which means you rarely ever got a day off from sports. Did it ever get to be too much?"

A: "No, not really, mostly because I didn't put a lot of effort into school. It was alright. [sic] I liked all my sports enough that, even in the rough times, it was alright to go to practice every day."

Inspiring. Truly, truly inspiring.

Forecast: Significant blowing and drifting, with the possibility of heavy accumulation in rural areas.
