Letter writer’s day one of disappointment

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

I awakened this morning feeling busted, disgusted and can’t even be trusted.

I’m tired of being the “have nots.” The devil in me hatched a brilliant plan to take from the “haves” and I would no longer be a “have not.”

I hid in the shadows of a back alley. Here comes my “have.” I pulled out what appeared to be a gun. Startled, the man whipped out what appeared to be a “phone.” He called the police, said I was acting arrogant as in numbskull, and to have me removed as a nuisance. I left without incident.

Later that day I laid eyes on the most beautiful babe I’ve ever seen. I kindly asked her for the time of day. She immediately shouted some obscenity I’ve heard before. She said she wouldn’t give me the time of day even if I had the damn watch. Once again, I left without incident.

Later on, my world (for ever it’s worth) collapsed. I discovered I was on the FBI’s top 10 least wanted list, nonetheless in last place.

What I wouldn’t give (for ever it’s worth) to speak to Rodney Dangerfield.

Beginning tonight, the Pittsburgh Penguins will take on the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round of the NHL playoffs. So, who ya got? And in how many games?

Penguins, in five games or fewer. Too much firepower for the Blue Jackets, especially if Evgeni Malkin is ready to go.
Penguins, in six or seven games. It’s a pretty even matchup on defense, but Pittsburgh will grind it out.
Blue Jackets, in five games or fewer. Sergei Bobrovsky in goal for the Blue Jackets spells trouble for the Pens.
Blue Jackets, in six or seven games. Bobrovsky gives Columbus the edge, but it won’t be easy.
