The most memorable Christmas present that this recently laid-off newspaper copy editor received in 2008:

My older daughter¬†¬†bought me a book when the University of Missouri was culling its stacks: Arville Schaleben’s 1961 (my birth year) Your Future in Journalism.

And just to make it extra-special, on the spine label was stamped, in big red letters, “DISCARD.”

Gotta love it.
