Wish We Had Thought of That

Posted By on Tue, Sep 4, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Our delivery guys occasionally bring me a copy of Valley Vibe, a free monthly in the Wood River Valley that we sometimes find clogging up our distribution racks.

Can't say the content really grabs me, but the masthead, and the disclaimer therein, made me green with envy.

There in the usual boilerplate about the paper's mission and contact information, is the following line:

"The Valley Vibe Newspaper staff cannot be held responsible for misprints or wrong information."

Dang. Now that's a winning disclaimer.

Here at BW, Arts and Entertainment Editor Amy Atkins and I sometimes joke that our motto ought to be, "We're Just Sayin'," because so many times when we tick someone off it's because we're just saying what we found out.

But this is a thing of beauty: A line stating that the paper is totally without fault if something is wrong.

Get me rewrite!
