Not Even a Moose
By Pat Cook

Garnes makes sure he uses the holiday to his own advantage, whether to expose the crooked mayor or sell a few more issues. Delilah and Sarah, Garnes' assistants, are equally cynical until they find a "Wish Moose," that grants their fondest wishes. And wishes do begin to come true - with hilariousconsequences!
