Would some commas killed ’em?

IMG_8782 2.jpgI know what they mean, but at first glance, I wondered how the ex-wife got in his jail cell.

For the record, I would have gone with:

Sex offender, charged in death of ex-wife, found hanged in jail

or

Accused sex offender, murderer found hanged in jail cell

The worst headline in America

03D7B891-3D5A-4A42-B4F4-1C5A6507FD52I had hoped not to see a headline along this vain, but looks like the copy desk at The Trentonian decided to throw out good taste and run with what has got to be the Worst Headline in America.

For non-history buffs, here’s what Wikipedia has:

The Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre is the name given to the 1929 murder in Chicago of seven men of the North Side gang during the Prohibition Era. It happened on February 14, and resulted from the struggle between the Irish American gang and the South Side Italian gang led by Al Capone to take control of organized crime in the city.

So there you have it. School shooting with 17 murdered put on the same par as a gangland slaying.  Keep it classy guys and gals.
