- I am getting Looney Tuney, touched in the head

My first newspaper job was with an editor whose favorite word was “yegg.” She used it to describe any of the scruffy types who cropped up in the paper’s Police Log. My first great triumph was to demonstrate that the term meant a safecracker or a thief. She told me that was very interesting and went right on using “yegg” the way she always had. Little did I know that I had been givena glimpse into the very heart of newspaper work.
