Janne and Brandon
I've noticed this part of the Eureka Reporter's Sunday Life section before. You can't see it online but, in the hard copy, they include pictures. A photo- essay, if you will, of certain weddings that took place around the county. One thing I don't understand is why they feature weddings that happened so long ago?
Today's featured wedding is that of my nephew, Brandon Rasmussen, to Janne Debets. Why are they doing that one now? The wedding was a couple months ago on July 12. Great space filler, I suppose.
I actually do my best to stay away from depressing events such as weddings or funerals. Like car wrecks, I don't like hearing or seeing them but I can't help but look when I'm driving by one.
So, I tend to stop and look at this particular column when I'm reading the Sunday paper. Kind of like those car wrecks. I guess it's morbid curiosity.
I suppose a lot of others besides myself have that same morbid curiosity and that's what the Eureka Reporter is trying to appeal to in publishing photos of these months old weddings. Hey, a dead body often looks even more gruesome a few months after it died, doesn't it? Same with weddings, I would think.
The Reporter might have a winner with this strategy but, to really make it work, they should probably include funerals, as well.
