Microfilm serves many purposes.
It’s great for research. And for genealogy. It makes you really tired and bored, which induces naps. It serves as a wonderful threat element for children, along the lines of, “If you don’t clean your room, you’ll be forced to read through the 1977 Nashville Banner.”

I want to know more. I need to know more. What is this Honey Princess the article speaks of? Is she made of actual honey? Does the title come with honey bestowing powers? Does she taste sweet (that’s not an intentional sexual reference, though it definitely works as one)? Does she march hand-in-hand with the Graham Cracker King?
Mostly, what I want to know is, what the heck happened to Honey Princess 1991, Pennie Reece? And does she still have the crown?
To be determined, I assure you …
