Ebony & Ivory

As years go, 2016 was one for the history books. The #1 story had to be Santa Claus, whose lifeless body was found on a McHenry County street, dead from a prescription painkiller overdose. The McHenryCountyBlog broke the story:

Your LakeCountyEye jacked the McHenryCountyBlog story and photos:
Santa Sleighed
And then the McHenryCountyBlog jacked the story back, off the LakeCountyEye:
An anonymous blogger writing Lake County Eye has a wonderful sense of humor. And, he's a reader of McHenry County Blog. Usually he makes fun of my mistakes, but this time he has reinterpreted three photos of the Crystal Lake Kiwanis' Santa Run.

Now just between you and your LakeCountyEye and the blogpost, that Cal Skinner at the McHenryCountyBlog is an incurable wisenheimer. Cal Skinner and your LakeCountyEye go way back many years, and he could tell you exactly who that "anonymous blogger" is. Here is an old photo of Skinner and your LakeCountyEye working the phones at a Channel 11 telethon for the Dan Walker legal defense fund:

Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is another hilarious LakeCountyEye Double Vision™!
Note to Ops: If you are looking for a good chuckle, you could do worse than the McHenryCountyBlog!
