I'm speechless. Truely one of the greatest stories I've ever read in the TL.

Now we know what Liechty does will all that free time.

It's like a real-life Man vs. Wild episode. Too bad he didn't take Venesky back out with him to the scene of the attack. Could you picture Tom furiously scribbling notes as Liechty dives left and dives right to avoid his arial tormentor? Add Don Carey to the mix, whipping his camera this way and that, trying to get the best-angle shot, and my what a time! What a time! Oh the howls of laughter.

I hope he didn't get cut by the Hawk because the last thing the Times Leader needs is more SCABS

Earth to 10:11 ... if you are now a 28-year old young reporter at the Times Leader, you were NOT EVEN BORN yet in 1978. Get over it, you old, sad, stuck in the '70s fuck-head.

What is Liechty still doing in town? Are he and Lacoe still an item? Does he work? Or does he spend his day gathering wild berries and nuts from the banks of the mighty Susquehanna?

Hilarious.

An e-mail I got today:

Maybe the best story ever.

Other possible stories:

-- Van Rose tormented by chipmunks.
-- Jean LaCoe knocked down by a rambunctious Great Dane
-- Clark Van Orden wrestles a bear
-- Dave Iseman fights a mountain lion to the death.

Hilarious story. Mike doesn't have a job. He saved so much money while at the TL he says he doesn't have to work for "a while."

What about Ron Bartizek in a standoff with a wild boar

So, even hawks can make editorial comments.

It would add to the story if Liechty got attacked in Hanover, get it, Hanover Hawks. Thank you, good night.

Dear God, someone put this clown out of his misery already. A f***in' hawk? Are you kidding me? I'd rather die than admit that.

how do we know the story is true?
great revenge from liechty, wouldn't you say? a man who is a hawk for detail absolutely knows how to pull the feathers over his former colleagues.

It's easy to save money when your only expenses are mom jeans for your lady hips and dollar beers at a basement bar.
