1. What a big chunk out of two streets looks like from above

2. I have no idea why the police car's hood has wood.

3. "Hello, AAA? My car's hood has wood."

4,5. Drain & flush

6. The Second Reformed Church now has double fire protection. BTW - there's only one new hydrant left in front of my building to adopt. Don't get shut out - get yours today!

1. Egad! Even the editorial page isn't immune.

2. New word: "hoered"

3. Missing word" "one"

4,5. It's bad enough when an entire quote is essentially repeated immediately following the same quote, but the repeat quotes are slightly re-written. Is this to fill space and maybe no one will notice?
By the way -  these same, nearly-identical double errors came from two different articles on the same page...........and both were written by the same, highly-respected writer (who I doubt made the errors).

Hackensack History / Black Sabbath played in Paramus! (sponsored by a church!)
« Last post by BLeafe on October 11, 2017, 02:55:07 PM »
On March 9, 1971, Black Sabbath played at the Century Theater at the Garden State Plaza.

No one could believe:

1. that they were playing in Paramus, of all places, and

2. that it was for a church

I HAD to go. As I recall, it was pretty much of a disaster. The band had sound problems, left the stage, came back and then walked off for good (though you can't tell any of that from the below video.........IF that video truly IS from the Paramus show).

The crowd was pissed.

Someone with the church came out on stage and tried to calm the crowd down and get them to leave, saying that refunds could be gotten at the box office. People rushed out to avoid a long line, only to find that the box office was closed and a sign was there saying that if you wanted a refund, you'd have to go to the church during weekdays. I decided that rather than get back my $5 for each ticket, my stubs would be more historically valuable to keep (see attached).

I don't imagine that the church made very much money from that benefit.

1. "...AS it was."

2. Double error in the same place: in the print edition, "the" is missing before the word "notion". In the online edition, both "the" AND "notion" are missing.

3. "...is moving"? Moved. "Starting this week..."? It started last week. Should we take bets on whether or not they'll print the same thing next week?
