Local Story

I was standing in Wegmans, floored by the
Thirty percent jump in produce prices in the
New Pittsford NY 14534 store. “Disco defies
Categories,” she says to her friend as they check
Out at register number seven. “The deal with
Marilyn Monroe was that she was THE bombshell.
She was extremely upset that the studio hype
Wouldn’t ever let her get past that.”
A negative nod returns, as this month’s tabloid
Topics rebound from one check out conversation
To another, in an era when paparazzi
Are blamed for Princess Di going to a 121 MPH
Grave. Yeah, RIGHT! I know tons of famous
People who would agree that 121 is about
The right speed to go when getting out of
The way of snoopy photo-hounds. It turns
Out that 121 MPH is NOT quick
Enough, however, to elude her ex-hubby’s
Henchmen; motorcycles just got a bad name.
