  1. My husband is great at picking out how “journalists” today don’t seem to know one end of a dictionary from another. My favorite from our local fare was a report on gay marriage after two years in Iowa: “The number of gay marriage has dropped off in the last year, as the NOVELTY has worn off.” Yes, I’m sure it was all a novelty. What a jackass. Thanks for pointing it out Moe.

    • They go to school and study ‘journalism’ (which I imagine includes courses on wardrobe and makeup). That doesn’t leave a lot of time for English.

      A GREEN feather! Well . . . .
