In today's edition of the Grand Rapids Press, our newspaper of record broke the following big story on Page 3:
"If you can evenly divide the year by 4, it's a leap year. We have leap years because the earth's rotation doesn't keep up with the calendar. We lose a quarter of a day every year, so we add an extra day to the calendar every 4 years to make up for it. Otherwise, eventually, summer would fall in winter."
I'll let you, dear readers, add the punchline to the joke that the Press has become.
