And here are two more timeless items from Paul Harvey’s For What It’s Worth:

Our For What It’s Worth Department eavesdrops on a meeting of the Wayne Central Board of Education . . .

With 1976 behind them, the assembled heard a report from Assistant Superintendent of Schools Gerald Greenstein.

And he presented to the Board a collection of excuses which parents had written to teachers this past year.

One says:  My son is under doctor’s care and should not stay in school this afternoon; please execute him.

One says:  Please excuse Blanche from physical education for a few days.  She fell from a tree and misplaced her hip.

Here’s Superintendent Greenstein’s favorite–

Dear school:  Pleas exkuse John from being absent October 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33.

It’s signed, Cincerely.

Spelled with two “C”s.

January 11, 1977


For What It’s Worth . . .

Midwest Burger King was robbed last night.

Police have arrested . . .

Are you ready for this?

Burger King was robbed last night and police have arrested eighteen-year-old Ronald McDonald.

April 5, 1979
