Seriously Sloppy Editing

Oh dear…

From this story at the WTNH news website:

storyerrors

 

but a GPS unit located inside, allowed authorities to track it – unnecessary comma
it knocked down power polls – should be ‘poles’
polls and and – duplicated ‘and’
foreced people to run – should be ‘forced’
whole bunch of eletricity – should be ‘electricity’
it came flying,I jumped back – missing space
driving wrecklessly – should be ‘recklessly’
HIne – capitalization error
no word on where the Garrett – extraneous ‘the’

 

Wow! Did I miss any?
I fully understand the occasional typo, but this is inexcusably bad.

Conservative Madness

(sent in by a friend)

You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy policy.

You didn’t get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.

You didn’t get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.

You didn’t get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn’t get mad when we spent over $600 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn’t get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

You didn’t get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn’t get mad when we didn’t catch Bin Laden.

You didn’t get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn’t get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.

You didn’t get mad when we gave a $900 billion tax break to the rich.

You didn’t get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.

You finally got mad when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all okay with you, but helping other Americans…oh hell no!
