Such was the case with last week's installment about the " bollards " (the correct word for large cement phalluses, I've since been snippily informed) that the city recently installed at our lovely new downtown intersection. The column hadn't even printed in the Winters Express yet when it started causing a stir.<br> - <br> - I walked into the office and our office manager cupped her hand over the phone and with a perplexed expression, said, "The city manager's on the phone and he wants to know about the penises."<br> - <br> - Now there's something you don't hear every day.<br> - <br> - I picked up the phone. He didn't say hello, he didn't ask how's it going, no chit-chat, no small talk — all he said was an icy, "What did you write?" Why, about our penises, of course. He sounded somewhat displeased about this. I told him to look on the bright side: If it attracts visitors to Winters , it's all good. He sounded unconvinced.<br> - <br> - Apparently this unexpected publicity twist wasn't what the city's fancy-shmantzy marketing consultants had in mind for the new Winters "brand." Oh well. They should've thought about that before they installed 13 penises at the main intersection downtown. Who'd they hire for design consultants? A team of nuns and virgins?<br> - <br> - I wasn't really sure what got the city manager all bristly until I discovered an e-mail from KOVR-13 reporter Mike DelloStritto, asking me to phone him because he was literally en route to Winters to film a segment on our new downtown décor. So I gave him a ring, and he said the city manager refused to discuss the matter on camera, so he planned to just wing it with whoever he could find on the street. I told him to have fun with that, and went back to work.<br> - <br> - Come quitting time, there's DelloStritto and crew right by my car, so I thought I'd stop and say hello.<br> - <br> - It was a typically slow Monday evening, freezing cold even with two jackets and a turtleneck (that's how you create that really sexy Michelin Tire Man look, by the way), and the streets were empty. So, DelloStritto asks if he can interview me, because he'd hoped to air the story that night. I figure, what the hey, they'll film some "real" people later on, what do I care, this'll all end up on the cutting room floor anyway.<br> - <br> - Well, it didn't all end up on the cutting room floor, and obviously I was having way too much fun with the topic. Apparently someone noticed. Next thing you know, the segment skittered across the Internet as far as the Baltimore Sun and "Daily Show" Web sites.<br> - <br> - Hoo-boy. Well, they wanted people to know about our new downtown. Now they know.<br> - <br> - That's the upswing of all this — regardless of the topic, our downtown looked fabulous. Even DelloStritto commented to me that although it's a gorgeous $2 million project, KOVR wouldn't otherwise have bothered to film it. Thanks to the bollards , our downtown was the 10:30 lead story. As the news anchor said, "There's no such thing as bad publicity."<br> - <br> - Even so, some people have their tights in a twist about ... things that need clarification.<br> - <br> - First off, that racy headline in The Enterprise? I didn't write it. My headline was "Even the White Rabbit would have stopped for this." Somewhat more innocuous than "Scaring the L out of pubic places," no? However, for every person who pitched a fit over this headline, there was one who loved it. Either way, I can't take credit.<br> - <br> - Second, people keep blaming me for creating all this hubbub. Might I reiterate that I wasn't the first to notice the bollards ' resemblance to the real thing. Someone else brought it to my attention, I merely reported it. Next time a storm hits, I suppose I'll get blamed for reporting on the power outage too.<br> - <br> - Even Mr. Breaking News wasn't the first to notice our bawdy bollards . Before my column ever hit ink, people were e-mailing photos of naughty little things they were doing to and with the peenie-pillars. I was nowhere near the front of the pack on this one.<br> - <br> - One gal wrote a furious letter to the editor and said because of me, she'd think about penises whenever she drives her horse-cart downtown. This from someone who spends much of her time staring at a horse's butt and smelling poo. If you ask me, I did her a huge favor. Besides, I didn't invent the shape. If you don't like the design, take it up with God.<br> - <br> - And then there's the budding songwriter who, in the spirit of the season, wrote a darling little ditty called "Debra Blows" to the tune of "Let It Snow," and circulated it far and wide via e-mail. And you know it got back to me. Ah well, have to take it all in stride, I suppose. However, here's where you separate the amateur rabble-rousers from the professionals. Our lyricist distributed his work anonymously, whereas the professional puts her name on her work. The amateur was too cowardly to reveal his name. Probably has a little bollard .<br> - <br> - — Debra LoGuercio is editor of The Winters Express, a member of the McNaughton Newspapers family.

Such was the case with last week's installment about the " bollards " (the correct word for large cement phalluses, I've since been snippily informed) that the city recently installed at our lovely new downtown intersection. The column hadn't even printed in the Winters Express yet when it started causing a stir.<br> - <br> - I walked into the office and our office manager cupped her hand over the phone and with a perplexed expression, said, "The city manager's on the phone and he wants to know about the penises."<br> - <br> - Now there's something you don't hear every day.<br> - <br> - I picked up the phone. He didn't say hello, he didn't ask how's it going, no chit-chat, no small talk — all he said was an icy, "What did you write?" Why, about our penises, of course. He sounded somewhat displeased about this. I told him to look on the bright side: If it attracts visitors to Winters , it's all good. He sounded unconvinced.<br> - <br> - Apparently this unexpected publicity twist wasn't what the city's fancy-shmantzy marketing consultants had in mind for the new Winters "brand." Oh well. They should've thought about that before they installed 13 penises at the main intersection downtown. Who'd they hire for design consultants? A team of nuns and virgins?<br> - <br> - I wasn't really sure what got the city manager all bristly until I discovered an e-mail from KOVR-13 reporter Mike DelloStritto, asking me to phone him because he was literally en route to Winters to film a segment on our new downtown décor. So I gave him a ring, and he said the city manager refused to discuss the matter on camera, so he planned to just wing it with whoever he could find on the street. I told him to have fun with that, and went back to work.<br> - <br> - Come quitting time, there's DelloStritto and crew right by my car, so I thought I'd stop and say hello.<br> - <br> - It was a typically slow Monday evening, freezing cold even with two jackets and a turtleneck (that's how you create that really sexy Michelin Tire Man look, by the way), and the streets were empty. So, DelloStritto asks if he can interview me, because he'd hoped to air the story that night. I figure, what the hey, they'll film some "real" people later on, what do I care, this'll all end up on the cutting room floor anyway.<br> - <br> - Well, it didn't all end up on the cutting room floor, and obviously I was having way too much fun with the topic. Apparently someone noticed. Next thing you know, the segment skittered across the Internet as far as the Baltimore Sun and "Daily Show" Web sites.<br> - <br> - Hoo-boy. Well, they wanted people to know about our new downtown. Now they know.<br> - <br> - That's the upswing of all this — regardless of the topic, our downtown looked fabulous. Even DelloStritto commented to me that although it's a gorgeous $2 million project, KOVR wouldn't otherwise have bothered to film it. Thanks to the bollards , our downtown was the 10:30 lead story. As the news anchor said, "There's no such thing as bad publicity."<br> - <br> - Even so, some people have their tights in a twist about ... things that need clarification.<br> - <br> - First off, that racy headline in The Enterprise? I didn't write it. My headline was "Even the White Rabbit would have stopped for this." Somewhat more innocuous than "Scaring the L out of pubic places," no? However, for every person who pitched a fit over this headline, there was one who loved it. Either way, I can't take credit.<br> - <br> - Second, people keep blaming me for creating all this hubbub. Might I reiterate that I wasn't the first to notice the bollards ' resemblance to the real thing. Someone else brought it to my attention, I merely reported it. Next time a storm hits, I suppose I'll get blamed for reporting on the power outage too.<br> - <br> - Even Mr. Breaking News wasn't the first to notice our bawdy bollards . Before my column ever hit ink, people were e-mailing photos of naughty little things they were doing to and with the peenie-pillars. I was nowhere near the front of the pack on this one.<br> - <br> - One gal wrote a furious letter to the editor and said because of me, she'd think about penises whenever she drives her horse-cart downtown. This from someone who spends much of her time staring at a horse's butt and smelling poo. If you ask me, I did her a huge favor. Besides, I didn't invent the shape. If you don't like the design, take it up with God.<br> - <br> - And then there's the budding songwriter who, in the spirit of the season, wrote a darling little ditty called "Debra Blows" to the tune of "Let It Snow," and circulated it far and wide via e-mail. And you know it got back to me. Ah well, have to take it all in stride, I suppose. However, here's where you separate the amateur rabble-rousers from the professionals. Our lyricist distributed his work anonymously, whereas the professional puts her name on her work. The amateur was too cowardly to reveal his name.
