Blogs » Your Advocate: an editor's blog » High-five for a newspaper haiku


I don't know why Victoria reader Ramona S. Flores tweeted this to me and others during the weekend:

I want to write a haiku. Need inspiration. Give me an idea, @johncheese @OhNoSheTwitnt @chriscobler @jonathan_katz @wilw @alyssaf7

I bit at the invitation, though, and tweeted back:

I vote for a haiku about the Victoria Advocate.

She promptly replied with this gem:

News today is bleak.

How great that my town paper

Builds up our spirits.

Thanks, Ramona, for building up my spirit this weekend.
