George Packard Rides Again

George Packard, retired schoolteacher and roving reporter for Bumbastories Magazine, raced his bicycle down Olympic Blvd. His eyes teared from the onrush of the cold, crisp morning air. George was flying, making all the lights. What a delight. He was headed for the beach, of course. George had decided to stop looking for scoops. No more Breaking News for George! The world had more than enough Breaking News. Indeed, even George Packard, news addict that he was, couldn’t tolerate all the Trumped-up Breaking News.IMG_1022 The media barrage, the Facebook and Twitter nonsense had become constant. There’s something wrong with that, thought George.

Better to look for a different kind of story….
