A “death wish” from Bay Point

Longtime Contra Times Times reader and unofficial Bay Point Mayor Gloria Magleby has a complaint with this newspaper. Here’s a chuckle for your day:

Obituary, Obituary,
Oh, where can you be?
Are you in section A, or B, or C?
Are you on page 2 or 3 or 5?
‘Cause I’d really like to know for sure,
Whether I’m dead or alive.
Should I look in the Sports Section
For news of my demise,
Or just keep searching ’til
“Obituaries” hit my eyes?
As we older people like to say,
“Keep the obits in the same place and way,
‘Cause, like it or not,
We’re going to be found there some day!”

Signed: Rabble Rouser Gloria

    Our dear Gloria is alive? What a glorious day this is. I am going to celebrate, well beyond prudence, a miracle like this has not been recorded in 1974 years.
    We all miss her dearly, she is “The Major of Bay Point” told me our mutual friend Supervisor Federal Glover, who, I was told yesterday, is “Recovering nicely, Thank you!”
    I hope and pray we shall see them in action soon, the world slows down and wobbles while they are not pushing us all. Great News!
    I cannot imagine the world without them.
