I miss Kems.
Jason Chatfield, can you give me the names of two or three American newspapers that carry “Ginger Meggs?”
I don’t have the full list – Universal will have that. Though I’m aware of the:
(Los Angeles, USA)
Media News Group Interactive
Houston Home Journal
and in Central America,
Cias Periodisticas Del Sol
(Mexico City, Mexico)
El Sol El Norte
Diario de Tampico
