Good grief! Just let it go. TV catch phrases are not good journalism, or even bad journalism. It’s doing your readers a great disservice because you’re lowering the importance of this down to, well, a TV catch phrase.

The editors at the Lodi (Calif.) News-Sentinel should be ashamed. All I can hope for is that there is a alt-copy editor who tried to talk the bosses out of this.

At least most other papers did not fall for this.
