"The newspapers! Sir, they are the most villainous, licentious, abominable, infernal -- Not that I ever read them! No, I make it a rule never to look into a newspaper." --Richard Brinsley Sheridan, The Critic

Zounds! These words, spoken by Sir Fretful Plagiary in Sheridan's 1779 comedy, seem ripped from today's headlines -- or Twitter feeds. We read of stormy affairs, trompe l'oeil, lies, fakery and more. Still, newspapers continue to report valuable information to educate the public. Beyond the titillation of salacious stories about the high and mighty, we read and learn of important matters that touch our lives. We become informed. Newspaper people, we salute you! 

The cattle in this month's Caption Contest photo, then, must have been the best-informed herd around. They had a supply of The Sagamore, the longtime IUPUI student newspaper, to keep them abreast of the news. One wonders why these rural ruminants liked to read about Indiana's urban university. Perhaps the grass was greener at IUPUI?

We salute Jim Oppold on winning last month's Caption Contest with his caption: "One way to avoid potholes...." He wins our Fabulous Prize!
