And may the Warren Times Observer follow in the steps of Alan Berg

The fact that print media suffers from a dearth of classified ads? Yeah, well it's probably a good thing if this is any indication:
WARREN, Pa. - The local newspaper apologized yesterday for running a classified advertisement calling for the assassination of President Obama.
Publisher John Elchert said the ad appeared Thursday in the Warren Times Observer. It read, "May Obama follow in the steps of Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley and Kennedy!" All four presidents were assassinated.

Elchert, Eichmann. Eichmann, Elchert.
