Those newspaper pricks!

Hey, have you been looking for a reason to give an evening newspaper a chance?

A Southland woman has to undergo months of uncertainty about her health after she was pricked by a needle or syringe she found wrapped inside her morning newspaper.
The woman from Bluff has told the Southland Times she was an "emotional wreck" after collecting her paper on Tuesday morning - only to feel a sharp prick in her finger.

But you're probably too busy in the evening, out having fun and going lots of places and spending all your discretionary income. Oh, wait.

I usually don't get that "emotional wreck" feeling, by the way, until I reach the morning paper's editorial page.
