Thankful For Small Favors

SAN DIEGO (Reuters) - An anonymous man fell off a ladder and died as he tried to attach Italy's flag to a pole ahead of Sunday's World Cup final against France.

The anonymous man was raising the flag on a patch of land near the nuclear power plant at San Onofre in north San Diego county when he apparently lost his balance and fell eighteen feet into a precipice, State Park officals reported.

Sheriffs spokesman Sheriff Bob said the man died instantly, still clutching his tricolor.

So that no one feels left out, this will serve as official notice that the paddle out in memory of Anonymous will consist of Puttzle, Murphy, Dingo, Dr. Ralph, Sydney Carton, Esq., The blog monitor, and Wednesday Adams all going about their ordinary day and NOT paddling out. There will be a small non-reception afterwards attended by NOBODY.
