Have you ever been in the news? I had my picture in a Denver news paper as a small child standing in the background with an elephant at the Denver Zoo and once was asked a political Question outside of a supermarket about Bill Clinton. I KNOW, EARTH SHATTERING NEWS.

How about the rest of y'all
Beware of the people who are in your circle but are not in your corner.

And with the stroke of a pen people 18 to 21 who own a gun became criminals and public enemy #1 having committed no crime and having said nothing. Just like the Jews in Germany during WW2. Must be a weird feeling.

When I hear people crying and whining about their first world problems I think about the universe with everything in it and people in wheelchairs and all of their problems go away.

Do "suspect still at large, believed to be armed and dangerous," news articles count, even if they don't know that it is you?

I was in the local news because someone came by and slashed the blowups at my house during christmas
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

I was on the news, but not the story, because I delivered a pizza to a house that had a news crew in their front lawn.

The story?
Her toddler/young child fell out the second story window. As in, went through the screen and played on the roof.
But, there was a rash of bad parenting at the time, so this was newsworthy...

Guess what, no tip.

My grandfather used have a collection of all the times I've been in the news, documenting both both prestige and the criminal. It was a funny collection, which he would draw quotes from to suit the occasion lol.

I fought a few cops one night out drunk and won myself a headline ["My client was a bit ropey"] which was my grandfather's favourite quote lol.

It was in 10th and 12th grade, academic performance in state. It wasn't technically news though, more of school publicizing in local/ national newspapers [went to a private school].

I was once interviewed about my reaction to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows too- although my half an hour interview was snipped to a few lines and interspersed with a lot of other people's interview, so it was kind of lame.
