Breaking news: a receptionist is hired

I kid you not; but what follows is an incoming Press Release to our editorial office today:

Schenectady, NY, December 18, 2007 – LeChase Construction Services, LLC is pleased to announce the addition of Bree Torres as Receptionist for the firm’s Capital District. In addition to her responsibilities as receptionist, Torres will also provide administrative support.


Now, we certainly wish the young lady well in her new career. But is this truly worthy of "press release" status?

Note to the good people at this firm: the problem with this is that the recipient newspapers and news services will tend to flag you as being one who sends non-newsworthy pieces. So, when you DO actually have something important to declare, they might no even bother opening up the email from you.

Just trying to help...
