Getting it wrong day after day

How does a dish of bear meat sound to you?

Road Warrior Columnist John Cichowski of The Record is so bored by his own repetition, he has to disguise his subject and hide it behind a jumble of meaningless words, as he did on L-1 today:
"Technically, it's still fall, but the frosty blasts that froze many of our noses and fuel hoses last week were grim reminders of the cruel chill that will again flail at our exposed roads, roofs and respiratory systems this winter."
Aren't his words flailing at our exposed faces every day?

Can't bear it

As if Better Living's irresponsible recipe for a raw, chopped beef log wasn't enough last week, head Assignment Editor Deirdre Sykes' Local section offers a stomach-turning one for bear meat on L-3 today: Sauerbraten with Bear Meat and Spaetzle.

In view of her size, Sykes has been cautioned about hiking anywhere near where the bear hunt is being conducted -- lest she end up in a pot.

Correction needed

On the front of the Business section today, the wrong photo was used with a story on toy stores. The caption says a man and his daughter are looking over a toy display, but the photo shows two boys.
