Man makes paper for good news

During a recent car crash, I ran into a jubilant man named Michael Smith, who said he wouldn't believe me if he made the newspaper in a positive light.

Well, you're wrong.

I snapped this photo of him shortly leaving the crash scene. I took it because I thought it looked cool.

I must of missed the point of the story?

Yeah, me too. I didn't know leaving the scene of a car crash qualifies for shedding a positive light on someone. Guess ya learn something new everyday.

maybe he wasn't in the car crash and Andy was leaving the scene after covering the story. the man just wanted a feel-good picture in the paper and Andy granted his wish. It beats the death and destruction news six days a week and sports on Sunday. thanks Andy.

Kinda my point Worddrow. Seems as though Andy wanted to prove a point is all. I'm not disrespecting Mr.Smith at all, just seems out of the ordinary for the Register.

Got me to smile.

"During a recent car crash, I ran into a jubilant man named Michael Smith, who said he wouldn't believe me if he made the newspaper in a positive light."

That is a terribly constructed sentence.
A nice gesture though.

Why was he jubilant? How did the idea of him being in the paper even come up? Is there a reason he would be in the paper in a less than positive light? I really don't understand this story at all.

“During a recent car crash, I ran into a jubilant man named Michael Smith”

Let’s see if I can figure out the point of story.

First, Andy crashed his car into Michael’s car. Rather than being upset, an overjoyed Michael then left the crash scene because his picture would be in the paper.

Probably not, huh? Oh well, it’s no less lucid than the majority of comments on this site… ;)
