I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: nobody reads Metro for the intellectual stimulation!
I can think of only three reasons for reading it:
–Commutes are long and/or boring
–Someone physically puts it into your hands each morning. (I love the guy at the Holland Street entrance of the Davis station — he looks like Santa Claus, albeit with tons of tattoos! He’s a bit gruff, but very sweet.)
My commute is about 20-25 minutes on the red line, so I usually read it on my way in (all but the Sports section). I usually find 1-3 errors per day.
This latest error, however, is beyond egregious. It’s in the front page’s biggest headline!
Take a look at the PDF of the front page here. I don’t know yet how to take a picture of my screen (on the computer), so I quite literally took a picture of my screen (with my camera). Archaic, I know.

Thanks, Andy, for pointing this out. Check out his blog.
