A little editing help here. Please.

I wrote something into my upcoming N&R column regarding Jerry Bledsoe’s continuing Rhino Times serial.  After submission, my editor didn’t object to it, but does think my theory on the following was a “stretch”.  Here’s the passage in question…

(The title of the series), ‘Cops in Black & White’, is rife with double entendre invoking more than just the racial aspects of this whole sordid affair.

Don’t you get it?   Black & White.  As in, “What is black and white and read all over?â€? Also notice it’s not “Black and Whiteâ€?; it is “Black & White”. You know, as in “News & Recordâ€?.

To me, Bledsoe’s reference to the newspaper was obvious from the git go, but then again I’ve got a wild imagination.  I called Rhino publisher Willie Hammer just now to ask if I’m really so far off base.  He says he has no idea if that was Jerry’s intent but will try to get me the author’s phone number before my now-moved deadline.

Jerry, if you are reading this… give a call or reply below.

    Hoggard, I never thought of it that way, but it makes sense given Jerry’s history with the N&R and his placing of them centrally in the controversy- rightly so, I might add.
