I thought it was Brown Betty (update with question for lawyerish types)

Tommy is learning about The Revolutionary War at school. Paul Revere was the subject yesterday.

He came home from school with a stick horse, tricorn hat, and lantern, all made out of paper. The stick horse is his favorite, of course.

I asked him if he learned the horse’s name.

“Drastic Measures.”


“I heard Paul Revere took drastic measures to warn the people about the British. They were coming!”


Update: I went to the Reader’s Digest website to look for a way to electronically submit this post. In the terms and conditions area, it states:

Original contributions, which should be no more than 500 characters, become our property upon submission. Your submission may be used in all print and electronic media. If it’s used on the website only, you will not get paid for it. If selected, it may be edited. Previously published material must have source’s name, date and page.

Does this mean I have to take down my post if it is suddenly THEIR property? If not, then is it considered “previously published” if it appears on a personal blog—so I cite the link to my blog post? I don’t want to mess this up.

Tommy could finally buy the Lego Deathstar with all that Reader’s Digest coin.
