Downey Patriot headline

I work as an editor in my day job, so I enjoy seeing the occasional typos and unclear statements in the newspapers. In fact, I check for a little bit of daily fun. But I don't generally get to see these things in my local paper—except for this week, when I spotted this headline in our Downey Patriot.

Of course, the Patriot can say that they're just reporting the news. It's the CDC who is spending our tax money to tell us the obvious.


  1. That is the kind of non story that often features in oyr Daily Mail here in the UK. Mind you I have a friend who both drinks (to excess in my view) and smokes but tells people in all seriousness that she has cut back on cheese because of the cholesterol!
