    Hah! Someone ripped off the Register!

    Wow, so I was on espn.com's Twins site and clicked on an article to read which brought me to the Argus Leader, which is apparently the newspaper for Sioux Falls, SD.

    The website is a total ripoff of Rag's, or vice-versa, maybe one of the Rag's 'investigative journalists' found it

    I believe that is the format of all "Gannett" papers... It Ia City Press Citizen is the same.

    Yes ... you are correct. Look at many of these...

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    I heard the Register was one of the first to get the Gannett website format as a test market. Now I think all the Gannett papers have the same format. It's really disorienting to follow a story link from elsewhere on the internet, and think you've accidentally stumbled back onto the Register website.
