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."
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.
While most people attempt to be politically correct now-a-days, The News-Times decided to take a shot at being risque with one of their Twitter posts.
"Western Connecticut State University gets its first black provost."
When you click the link, the title reads "Women's group welcomes WestConn's African-American provost," which seems like a better way of selling the article to their readers. I know something like this may not be considered offensive, but it's something that still needs to be watched.
"In the long run, all wrongs are righted, every minus is equalized with a plus, the columns are totaled and the totals are found correct. But that's in the long run. We must live in the short run and matters are often unjust there. The compensating for us of the universe makes all the accounts come out even, but they grind down the good as well as the wicked in the process."
This quote is from The Poet, written by my favorite author, Michael Connelly. There is just something about this passage that I liked so I decided to share it.
