Marquette Tribune, Sept. 19, 1990

I spent the afternoon going through old copies of the Marquette Tribune – a paper I wrote for decades ago – and found some interesting items, including this 1990 page one story about Chris Farley. He told the paper he had a one-year contract and was getting set to “stay with SNL as long as I can.”

What Seth Myers said on last night’s “Saturday Night Live Weekend Update” (watch it at the 33:00 mark):

A Florida newspaper is inviting readers to volunteer as proofreaders for three hours a night, with the person catching the most typos winning a free dinner. But you’re going to need more than three hours to find all the typos in the Flurdah Son Tims.
