There once was a Mayor named Tony...
However...if there are any readers out there with spare minutes on their hands, they might want to enter the DowntownNews's limerick contest.
Fancy yourself a poet? Then put your rhyming to the test in the Los Angeles Downtown News Limerick Contest in honor of St. Patrick's Day. Just fill out the form on page 15 with a five-line verse and send it to us. There's just one catch: Your lucky limerick has to focus on Downtown and its people, places or things. We'll print our favorite entries in the Monday, March 13, issue, with the best earning a pot of gold. Actually, make that a $50 gift certificate to Ciudad. The deadline is 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 7.
The contest in fact seems perfectly tailored to Samistas, who demonstrate their creative writing skills here hourly. Don't forget to share your best efforts with the Mayor.
I'm working on one myself. Rhyme away, dum-dums!
