Farewell, Newspaper Lady

The Newspaper Lady has died. When I moved here, I stubbornly continued to red MSP papers for a year. At every street festival, at every new student weekend on campus at UMD and LSC, she was there, giving out papers and tempting me with deals. After about four free papers and four smooth pitches, I became a DNT subscriber and never looked back.

Thank you, Newspaper Lady. You helped make Duluth home.

+1 Rhetoric guy. Tragic story any way you look at it.

There was just so much more to Paula than the newspaper.  She was a genuine angel. Funeral is today at the cremation society - 12PM.
