Finding Utopia

Friday, November 06, 2009


Last month, John Harris, a legendary reporter for the National Enquirer, died at the age of 76. One of his colleagues, David Wright, talks about Harris's most famous assignment for the Enquirer: a search for Utopia.

Two thoughts: at Ledgewood Rehabilitation (for my broken hip last winter) a nurse's aide there is named Utopia and, if one were not obsessed with physical beauty, her spirit filled the bill whereas the firm, Utopia Home Care, Inc, with an office in the senior and disabled complex where I now reside, had one of their promotional take-away coffee mugs show up at our nearby Goodwill Store which I bought only to discover that it will only deliver liquid while poured directly downwardly resulting in gulping scalding hot coffee. Not exactly a Utopian outcome.

A great (and I suspect humorous) follow up would be for Brooke to quickly report back whether the story was, in fact, fiction.

The Enquirer covered on OTM? Isn't this a sign of the Apocalypse?
