“That’s Alice from the Lewis Carroll tale, ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.’”

“But Mommy, where’s Alice’s head?”

“Oh, she had a run in with the Queen of Hearts.”

    Off with her head indeed. I’m still trying to imagine New York without The Daily News. It wasn’t my paper, but it was NEW YORK’s paper. It was Superman’s paper. It was EVERYBODY’S paper.

      It’s a shame that the paper is being gutted like that.
