THE CENTRAL PA GAZELLE

A look at what isn't making news across the midstate

Letters To D. Editor

I’ve been told that Nazareth resident and retired race car driver Mario Andretti has been approached by the State Police to become [Governor] Rendell’s new driver. Have you heard that?
T.B.
The Gazelle has indeed confirmed that Andretti auditioned for the role of Rendell’s driver. However, he flunked on two accounts: he didn’t drive fast enough for the governor’s tastes and Rendell’s beer twice slipped off the dashboard — a major no-no.

[In response to “PennDOT Chief ‘Flummoxed’ At Results Of Anna Nicole Paternity Test” of 4/11/07]
Gee, I wonder how many people are now looking up the word “flummoxed”?? Thanks for the “word of the day.”
S.E.

Interestingly, I had more folks email wondering if a “Birkhead” was a form of acne.

I love your blog. Its funny as hell. I don’t know if you accept submissions from hacks…
D.B.
Thanks for the kind words. The most helpful submissions from readers so far have come in the form of unusual photographs with a midstate flavor. Not all have been printable (for instance, the one featuring Hershey CEO Rick Lenny, a sheep and a bondage harness), but some have sparked story ideas. And in such cases, I do give photo credit when it’s due (if people let me).

Thank you! Good writing – funny and current! First time I visited your site reminded me of MAD magazine! Keep up the great work!
Bill S.
I’ll pass your kudos along to Alfred E. Neuman, an Editor-At-Large of the Gazelle.
