YOU CAN'T GO HOME AGAIN

I started my newspaper career in 1971 as a reporter for the Daily Local News in West Chester, Pa., where I learned pretty much everything I know about journalism, and wrote my first weekly humor columns. Today I was in West Chester and went to visit my old paper, only to discover that it has moved (the sign on the door didn't say where) and the once-spiffy building where I worked for five years is being consumed by plant life. Amid the greenery by the front entrance were a female deer and her two babies. Here I am with the mom. I'm like, "What are you doing here?" and she's like, "I live here. What are YOU doing here?"
