This morning, a funny thing happened when I opened my hotel room door. I looked down at the doorway opening and did not see a U.S.A Today newspaper.
Thinking someone forgot to place the paper there, I went to the receptionist’s desk and asked for a copy. The clerk’s response to my request was unforgettable. She said, “What is a U.S.A Today?” I responded and told her it was a newspaper. Her next question helped explain the plight of America — “What is a newspaper?”
Her question also shows I haven’t stayed in a Hampton Inn recently.
