It's always nice when something in our pages gets national attention. Who knew that it would ever happen with an advertisement? But that's exactly what has happened, with Salon, Huffington Post and the Washington Post buzzing about our pages.

It is an ad from CASH (the Committee Against Sexual Hypocrisy) which is going all Larry Flynt about Gov. Rick Perry.

If you head to page 14 of today's edition (or check out our e-reader) you can see what all the controversy is about.
