Catch of the Week

On Oct. 9, the Danbury Patch website ran an article called "Danbury Police Log: Shots Fired, Felon With a Dangerous Weapon."

From what I have learned about internet writing, the subheading shouldn't be a legal disclaimer, but a quick synopsis of the article.  The disclaimer could still be placed at the bottom, but the subheading should be a basic "Report of gun shots leads to arrest of convicted felon."

Catch of the Week 9/23/11

This wasn't really a catch, but I meant to write about this last week.  A women was detained and strip searched on 9/11 after being pulled off her plane because of "suspicious behavior."  The government was allowed to do that because of the Patriot Act.  I found it disgusting that we are allowed to behave this way, but it is for our own safety.
