Katie Crouch, a Charleston girl who has moved on to bigger and better things, has a new book out called Girls in Trucks. Near the end, some folks are trying to get the protagonist, Sarah, to move back to Charleston:

“Why don’t you come back here, Sarah?” Georgia says, sitting on the railing. “You could start something up here. A writing gig at the paper.”

“What, the Newsless Courier?”

Ouch.  But then, I guess it’s better to be the butt of the joke than not be mentioned at all.
