In honor of WWII and the courageous vets of the time, this is my reporting and take of the news, 75 years ago today

April 26, 1940

I’m sorry for the delay and lapse of the news during the month of April, folks.

While reporting the German invasion of Norway, I became trapped behind enemy lines and eventually captured by the Nazis who thought I was a spy.

With the help of some locals, I was able to escape before the Nazis carted me off to a firing squad in Germany.

You can rest assured that I will start my reporting of the news once again on May 1st.

Your Roving Reporter, Aki Solomos, signing off.
