Hackensack Discussion / Quadriplegic steer rustled into Hackensack SUV

Hey - we can write National Enquirer-type headlines too. BTW - the clever rustlers pixelated their own faces.

1. If that second "single" was in parentheses, it might work if the story was about marital statuses. Unfortunately............

2.  "view son"? Misplaced space.

3. The problem with this is that it's a quote...........did the guy actually say "collect" instead of "collected"? I'm betting he didn't.

It would be nice if the Chamber of Commerce or whoever could get local restaurants to offer pre show or post show dining packages to concert attendees to show what can happen when new life comes to a downtown area.
Nobody would lose on a deal like that.

This is only for any major fans of the Yankees, Citi Field or Major League Baseball in general: I've put the fully-expanded version - 98 pictures and stories (including one I made up) - of this game on my photoblog, https://IAintJustMusic.bobleafe.com/

I may never get to shoot them this close again, so I might as well do it up now.

1. Space limitations require that newspapers sometimes have to split words and continue them on the next line and the proper way to do that is to make the split between syllables.

It's quite sloppy-looking (and somewhat ignorant) when papers just split words anywhere they feel like it, but this goes beyond that. What would be the reason for splitting the unsplittable word, "ALL"?

As the second sentence shows, there's enough room in the top line to include the ridiculously-split word AND the next word.


2. Obvious

1. Obvious (but I circled it anyway)

2. What's with those 3 words with no punctuation between the two paragraphs? It's supposed to be one of those mini-headlines in boldface that has spaces above and below to introduce a new subject within an article...............but somebody forgot to do all that. It just looks like sloppiness.

And the sports section keeps bumbling along...........


1. Happy last day of summer!

To commemorate the occasion, The Record used a very stale suggestion today in the below caption. Hurry! There are only a few hours left!


2. This story is about a very unfortunate incident that occurred at Yankee Stadium yesterday, where a 2 year-old girl was hit in the face by a 100+mph line-drive foul ball. The latest I heard is that she's OK, but no real details were provided. Subject matter aside, read the two paragraphs marked with a red X and then the two marked with a red O. Filler? The small red underline shows a new word that causes confusion by adding an "H" for some odd reason.


3. Talk about stale! Since today is Thursday, this sounds like it's about a game next Wednesday, but it's actually about the game that the Yankees won yesterday afternoon...............not late last night - yesterday afternoon.


4. Why is there a comma in this sentence when "and" is already there?

My 3,000th post!

1. Should read, "arrived in Miami"

2. Probably should read, "...I could tell during the season that my muscles probably weren't going to be able to keep up". This might also work: "...probably weren't able to keep up". Either one makes a lot more sense that what was printed.

3. It's as plan as the nose on your face that this is just plain wrong.

4. On September 7, I posted The Record's (mis)use of this same picture and caption in a different article. Still, no one there has even bothered to actually look at the picture and notice the obvious error in direction. I'll bet it happens again.

5. Read the quote from Paterson's historical preservation director. Hamilton faces the falls and if people want to take selfies with the statue and have the falls in the background, they'd be taking pictures of Hamilton's back. That might also be a pretty good reason to kill the plan.

6. Lastly, I give you something that's not really an error, but maybe could be worded differently. Until then, let's all say a prayer for this unfortunate individual who gets hit with this every 40 seconds.
