Subject:Possible April Fool's gag From:WENDY <WARREN -at- VAX -dot- EDINBORO -dot- EDU> Date:Thu, 31 Mar 1994 17:56:07 -0400
In response to Eric's message about a software to replace sportswriters:
I have no idea (although I suspect) whether this
is an April Fool's gag or not. However, as a former
sportswriter covering high school football games, I
would not be at all surprised if this were the
case! As long as I learned how to use, overuse, and
abuse dramatic words like "pounced," "trounced,"
and "massacred," I just spliced in the facts and
I had a sports story.
Who knows? ;->
