Somebody left 4 of them in front of my building.

What is that small white building in the center?

I'm guessing that the white structure - as opposed to the gray buildings - is some sort of entrance/front to the club.

That's why I said I'd like to see a picture of the club's front entrance. I can't find anything online.

Maybe we should just go knock on the door of the bigger house that's still there and ask if anybody knows anything.

Two for one today in an article about the Mets' Jacob DeGrom.........

The first one is pretty obvious and the second one alters the name of a Florida team.

Lastly, it's another really stale-sounding article. Read what's within the red quotation marks - definitely upcoming-sounding, right? - and then look at the publication day/date.

The game was last night.

If you back up to the first page of this thread, there's a postcard that shows the exterior, albeit very small.

I've superimposed that postcard over the more current shot  (3 posts up). In it, you can see that the big house next door looks the same and that George's was comparatively tiny.

I'm hoping there's a picture out there somewhere of the front entrance to George's.

I recently found this amongst a pile of other stuff in my apartment:

Look at the size of this tiny thing! From my living room, it looks like a postage stamp. Check it out the next time you drive by.

I know Sears is losing money, but this is not where they should be skimping.

1. Continuing the "Future is Today" theme: Read the first sentence in the first image. Sounds like that game will take place sometime in the future, right? Then check the date of the paper. The game is TODAY (actually, tonight). Wouldn't it eliminate all possible confusion by writing, "The Jets host the Eagles in their preseason finale tonight at MetLife Stadium."?

2. Here's a new one: this is how part of the "Transactions" space appeared in print today (it was OK online). Did you know that the Oakland Raiders have a wide receiver named "erts"?

Here's what it looks like as of Monday:

Today's error: a little sloppy, but not difficult to figure out..............except that you shouldn't have to be figuring out what a newspaper is saying.

And why, in TODAY'S (Wednesday) paper, about TODAY'S (Wednesday) Stadium gate opening, doesn't it say "Today, Yankee Stadium's gates..." instead of "On Wednesday..."? (What - next Wednesday?")
It used to be that when you opened up a newspaper and it was referring to something that was happening on the same day as the paper's date, it always said "today".

I understand that the information may have been written and immediately placed online when it was received - probably last night - and was technically correct LAST NIGHT, but not correcting these things for print AND online editions after midnight makes both editions look very stale on Wednesday.

A little sloppy AND a little lazy?

Don't you think that no matter what anyone names it, it's always gonna be called the HackPAC?

I wonder if a proofreading position still exists after the new owners took over.

New words to learn today!

Any idea what they mean? (no peeking ahead!)



They can be found in today's sports section of The Record. For some reason, it seems that the sports section gets to provide most - but not all - of these fun learning experiences.

Thankfully, context will translate.

You win that bet.

The road has been open with "Raised Manhole" warning signs and will be paved tomorrow.

Get 4 wheels over a curb, apparently.

I shot the car on the left last year. The car on the right just occurred on Thursday. I have no idea how these things could have happened.

The bottom shot was posted here 2 years ago.

Main St between Anderson and Ward was closed today for milling. I got there just after the big machine had left and took these pictures:
