The question here is: Is this emphasis on media prominence and self-promotion an attempt to reflect our changing times or is it just filler to to take up space in an otherwise thin fall plot? The other question is: Does the Milford Star have it’s own iPad app and/or have a sophisticated enough web presence that its articles scale neatly to the display space of whatever mobile device* our anonymous Mudlark is using in Panel One. A third question is: Whither the proverbial “bulletin board material” in the new media age? Is the freaky fingered gent from Goshen going to shove some push pins through his iPad (or do these rage-aholics employ Pinterest for their bounty system)?
Okay, one final question: Why is 22 an easier number to target than say, 34, or 67, or 6? I know, I know. Ease up, Ned!
*The irony is that the device in question is the SpudTab, the world first potato based tablet. Terry Gallagher’s father was recruited by Apex Industries specifically to tap into the dubious promise of the potato as a cheap alternative to copper, lead, aluminum, platinum, tin, gold, silver, bromine and mercury. Early reviews have been mostly poor. There’s a weird film on the screen that lends a pinkish haze to the display. Also, if the battery overheats, it starts to smell like french fries.
Whoa! Abro the Toe is the first to sco’, then Starvey adds six mo’, (plus one mo’ from the Toe). Sorry about that, but the “actual action” part has been so uninspiring that it’s hard not to resort to gibberish.
What a completely insane collection of face masks. Also, down by only ten and these guys are already readjusting their priorities toward cheap shotting some kid who dared to be Irish and get written up in his home town paper? We expect a certain amount of racist insanity from the crowds, but don’t any of these kids just want to play ball?
