All I got to say is ...

It's a long way from the days when the Dispatch newsroom of the late 1970s was equipped with manual typewriters and glue pots on the desks to the current push for online blogs.

In those days, the Brainerd Dispatch published social news from local correspondents such as Alberta Irwin of Motley and Mrs. Milt Pearson of Wadena. Those were really the original blogs letting readers know who the pastor entertained last Tuesday and what was served.

Truly, there is nothing new under the sun.
