Boss Lady Equips Her Ace Reporter
Boy, am I one lucky feline! Boss Lady, who runs my Library, makes sure that her staff has the vital equipment needed to perform outstanding work. Being an ace reporter, there are certain accoutrements necessary for getting the facts straight and the story organized. First and foremost, a reporter must have a truly chic, yet fully functional, notebook. Boss Lady, who understands the value of preparation and foresightedness, was once again ahead of the curve and purchased just the ticket.
Every Feline Roving Reporter Should Have One
Ready to Report!
"Just the Facts, Ma'am"
I bet no other feline roving reporter is this well-equipped to deliver the latest, breakingest news as it happens, right here and nower than now. (Whoever's in charge of American English dictionaries should add those two not-words-but-oughtta-be in that last sentence.)
All set to get those news scoops, Boss Lady. Thanks! I'll make you so proud.
Look Out, Stories, Here I Come!

P.S. In the old days, before the Internet, a reporter sometimes had to transmit his or her story to an editor via telegram to meet a deadline. Here, then, is the definitive pop song about telegraphic messaging: "Western Union" (1967), by the Five Americans (performed live on the Steve Allen Show). For the uninitiated, the "da-ta-da-ta-da" choruses are intended to mimic the Morse Code sounds made by operating the telegraph key set.
