NEARLY TWENTY-SIX YEARS AGO TODAY…
Edition #47 (published on April 23, 1991) of the original printed edition of The Whistleblower (not the Newswire) was delivered to Persons of Consequence all over town. The Really Big Story was about a Sterne measure that forbids male chauvinists in the work place. The Top Ten List was the top ten things a boss could do to make his secretary feel special during Secretaries Week, and Marvin Warner was featured on the weekly Sleaze Card.
Page Two with a Real Editorial by Publisher Charles Foster Kane about his secretary Rose Budd, Real Facts told about a letter Cincinnati Mayor David Mann had written to Chamber President John Williams about air pollution, an item about the new Whistleblower Poll, and a Secretaries Week Ad for Trixie’s Bed ‘n Breakfast.
Page Three featured Cheap Shots against Congressman Chamber President John Williams, Councilman Guy Guckenberger, Congressman Landslide Charlie Luken, Tom Mooney, and David Letterman. And as always, there was Another Real Guest Editorial by Bunky Tadwell.
Page Four was for our regular weekly Real Letters From Real Readers column, Another Exclusive Whistleblower Report told about Auditor’s Warrants, Slumlord Stan Solomon’s crappy apartments, and a new pollution detector that was introduced at the Clean Air Meeting.
Page Five featured a report on the prestigious “Covington Award” in Ken Camboo’s Bluegrass Holler column, then Northern Kentucky Bureau Chief J.R. Hatfield told us people who didn’t like all that airport noise, former Covington Economic Director Tom Fiorini working at his new job in Cincinnati, and theft in office in Ludlow.
And Page Six included “A Liberal’s Laments” by Teddy Kennedy, and advertisement for an inflatable Nancy Reagan doll, and Real Gossip by Linda Libel. It’s really hard to believe how good The Whistleblower was in those days.
