A reporter gets a lobster offer from a man trying to stay out of her paper’s police log

From the note:

I guess what I was asking/hoping is that you wouldn’t include my incident [driving with a suspended license] in the paper. I will even make any kind of deals with you. I lobster part time and if you like lobster then I could get you all the lobster you want for the next year and a nice free lobster dinner once or twice a year. I am really desperate not to let my family see this.

Portsmouth (NH) Herald reporter Beth Dinan tweeted the above note as a #TBT (Throwback Thursday) suggestion. She tells us: “I received the request in July of 2011, laughed a fair amount, stuck it on my bulletin board and never replied.”
