I'm speechless.... This hurts on so many levels.

I opened up the Metro today and found the following gems:
  • Oh My God page 4 is the Denis Leary Fan Club page. It's got a giant photo of Denis Leary and the boat he's donating to the Boston Fire Department, two articles and a brief about his philanthropic efforts, and two quotes. One of the Denis Leary quotes isn't even relevant to anything else on the page:

    Yeah, watching [Sergei] Samsonov play for the Stanley Cup Finals. Yeah, that had no affect [sic] on me whatsoever. And yeah, watching Joe [Thornton] get the MVP Award. Yeah, that was a brilliant trade.

    [livejournal.com profile] doma suggested that it might be some summer intern's last day.

  • Sixty or so puppies in a tractor-trailer died when the truck went up in flames on I-495. I am sad.

  • A nonprofit called "The Gentle Wind Project" is being dissolved for false advertising. They apparently touted "devices ranging from small laminated cards to hockey puck-like disks" that can "help repair a person's energetic structure, thereby improving one's emotional, mental and physical functioning."

  • Yup, Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi visited the Yasukuni shrine again yesterday. What is this, like a yearly occurrence? Expect student riots in China.

  • The solar system is expanding! ... as a result of the International Astronomical Union revising their definition of "planet". One of the new planets might be called "Xena" and its moon "Gabrielle".

Ian finally breaks the silence (lameness, laziness, torpor, whatever you call it) to highlight a couple of glaring errors in the Metro today.
  • Error the First: an article describes a Brookline septuagenarian as "a Korean War veteran who also spent time in Figi in the Peace Corps."
  • Error the Second: a headline about the impending deadline of MGL c. 148, ยงยง 26F1/2 ("Nicole's Law") reads "All homes must have CO2 alarms by end of month."
Now Ian will crawl back into his den until spring.
