We are still using the sticks for our dailies. But we also staple the paper
sections. Apparently we have more of a dishonest population then others.
Despite our efforts we still have sections/pages removed from the papers.
Whenever there is a contest entry form in the paper, we have to X the form
with markers, or they get ripped out.
And I'm fighting a rear-guard action against those who don't understand why
they can't fill in the crosswords in the papers.
