Wet Newspapers: Not Like Snowy Newspapers

NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 18 — Two days of rain here, or rather, two overnights into early mornings, and our newpapers weren't readable. Fortuneately, NYT does us the great favor of letting us report when we our papers are wet. Supposedly Sulzberger and company will credit our account for the lost reading pleasure. We'll find out.

We like two days of rain much less than two days of snow. Snow we can brush off of our papers and continue reading, while rain makes them sog-a-log-dog-hog and fragile.
