One of our sales reps, Joe Friedman, got an earful last week when he talked to a Tombstone city official who shall remain nameless. According to the official, many in The Town Too Tough To Die are miffed about not making our Top Ten Western Towns list this year. I got a call from a Tombstone Epitaph reporter saying that the scuttlebutt around town is that they didn't make the list because they didn't buy an ad with us. As I pointed out to the reporter, then don't tell our number two town Florence, Arizona, because they didn't buy an ad either. Nor did Virginia City, Nevada, also a top ten finisher.
Anyway, I was a little nervous about being misquoted on the dustup over this but I shouldn't have worried because the reporter is a student at the University of Arizona journalism department. Here's the link to her excellent story:
