When I was 10, my sister (who was 6) and I put together a neighborhood newspaper; we sold subscriptions door to door; we wrote everything--the comic strips, the advice columns, the profiles of people in our building, the editorials about pollution and grafitti. Our very first headline was GIRL STUCK IN ELEVATOR!, based on the trials and tribulations of our friend Julie McAffery, who was stuck in our building's elevator for a short while, probably half an hour at the most. Nothing like this poor guy, who was trapped in an elevator for three days. I wonder if some kid in his neighborhood is writing about him now.
