    A small town in the US state of Missouri is stirring controversy after announcing the title of its new local newspaper, the Uranus Examiner.

    The newspaper, which was "launched" in the town of Uranus on Wednesday, was threatened with a boycott by the mayor of nearby Waynesville, Luge Hardman.

    "No. I'm sorry. But the innuendo of that title puts the city up for public ridicule," Ms Hardman said.

    The people of Uranus, in Pulaski County, are divided on the issue.

    Natalie Sanders, who has been named as the newspaper's managing editor, told local news channel KY3 that the title was carefully considered before a decision was made.

    "We had thought about 'constitution', but most of the people who love us, and who were part of coming up with the name, liked the examiner better," Ms Sanders reportedly said.

      Yes, divided in the butt crack of America.

      I think naming your city Uranus has already put the city up for public ridicule.

          It's not just a place. It's a Destination.
          And the Uranus Examiner keeps in tone with everything else there.

          • I think Manafort is now actively cooperating. He will probably get a more lenient sentence on the first trial verdicts. Trump is royally screwed.

              • I was spot on again about Manafort. He flipped for a plea bargain. It had nothing to do with a trial being too costly. He is actively cooperating with Mueller, possibly regarding the collusion and conspiracy claims.

                Geriatric Rudi Ghoulanna is claiming that there was nothing damaging or offered on Trump. Now I believe the exact opposite. This is nearing its conclusion. Trump will be out before the end of his term.

                  • So this latest Democrat accuser gives her story to a politician who then gives it to Feinstein who then gives it to the FBI, not like a decent person would do, but she releases a public statement. And she's been holding on to it for months. Are there any decent Democrats left. She's the old guard, but she knows they will elect someone else that doesn't have any moral decency.

                          A decent person would say, "what business of this is mine." A Democrat would say, "I'll tell the FBI and release a public statement, but I'll wait until the best political time." After all we all know they don't give a **** about women.

                            A decent person wouldn't report potential crimes to the FBI?

                              Because someone gave them a letter written by someone else saying that a high school student tried to do something 35 years ago THAT ISN'T A FEDERAL CRIME?

                                Well, I heard it was in the vicinity of sexual molestation or even rape ... not a good CV entry for someone who wants to become supreme court
                                (but I guess republicans see it a little bit more relaxed when it comes to sexual crimes against women)
