Marc is an ink-stained wretch at our local feisty tabloid. He describes a newsroom meeting in which one editor couldn't understand why a teenager rescued by HERO COP from a fire-ravaged home was still asleep when the fire broke out around 10:30 a.m.:

... People wonder why newspapers aren't doing so hot with younger readers. It may be because they hire editors mystified that someone may have been up so late that they could still be in bed past dawn.

On the other hand, I may just have been offended by what's implied by the question. I was asleep until 11 a.m.
