There is the making of a great novel in here somewhere.
A corporation manufactures a sought after product that people regularly clamor to get. But somewhere between delivery and payment, the product disappears without a trace. There are no suspects. No clues. No witnesses.
What’s happened? Were international secrets stolen? A large stock swindle on Wall Street? Maybe an arms cartel absconded with the latest military technology.
Nope. None of these.
Copies of the Fairbury Journal-News are regularly being stolen without payment. That’s right....the local newspaper, the weekly wipe, small-town news, the rant & rag. This newspaper.
