There’s one born every minute – especially considering that the paper distributed this morning wasn’t the same as the one distributed last night at about midnight, which I purchased about 15 seconds after it came off the truck, and which I have not seen on ebay at all. This is the real first edition of the Chicago Tribune following Obama’s election:

    I live in Des Plaines and the gas station by my apartment has a bunch. This morning manfriend picked up yesterday’s Tribune and Sun Times.
