Dubois: I wonder if there was a rule

By By Carl Dubois / Special to the American Press

As I mentioned previously, I visited the newsroom at the paper where I formerly worked in Oregon. There are wonderful things and people there, and one of my favorites is this phone and hat combination.

It's no smartphone, but back when it was new, I bet it was no dummy. Admit it, we've all wanted to place a call on a phone like that.

But I wonder if there was a rule that you had to wear the hat to use the phone.

If so, I'm still all in.
