Laura Pulfer, "Inside Cincinnati"


"Although I'm a rookie at The Enquirer, I've been lurking around the city for 25 years, and I'm proud to say I've made friends in both high and low places. And have offended them all at least once. Because my heart is pure, they forgive me and continue to pass along information I couldn't get from 'official sources.'

"Despite my fascination with whoopee cushions and politicians, you'll find that I'm a very serious person. I will avoid gratuitous insults to line dancing, fur coats, tofu, Clarence Thomas or Cleveland. But I promise to make fun of things that need it every chance I get."
