Equally disheartening and perplexing is why wasn't this covered more widely in the press. Doesn't sell advertising I guess.

Hmmm .... can't agree with that, Wrong. It looks like a doozy of a story to me, and I have committed broadcast journalism on more than one occasion.

I'm at a loss to explain it, honestly -- it was Asheville, it was a Friday ... it got shoved off for whatever Rumptastic Tweet was the "real" news of the day?

Gotta tell you, somewhere some editors are chomping figurative cigars and saying editor stuff like, "You bastards got scooped by the (*&$^T@#!! Asheville Citizen-Times??! THE HELL DO I PAY YOU PEOPLE FOR?"

Asheville is fairly close to where we used to live, and this doesn't surprise me.

Our town went through a spate of bomb threats being called in to stores and it made nary a blip except on local news, if that.

I dunno. 'Estes' sound like it could be Hispanic.

So at least he failed in that?
