what a slam

I did some research for a woman who grew up thinking she was the first baby born in the city in 1960. She said she isn't on speaking terms with her mother, so she has no idea which hospital it might have been. She wanted the newspaper article about her birthday.

Her 45 years of life on this planet have been defined by this claim to fame. I looked through the microfilm but couldn't find any mention of the first baby of the year, so I sent the request to the research agency. What a slam, they found the first baby of 1960, but it wasn't this woman! It was a boy...

Yet another reason not to speak to her mother, the lying bastard.
