The second thing is right here: Congratulations to the Miami Hurled for finally, after ten stinking years, making the adjustment in its print version so that “9/11” appears in full size rather than 9/11, something I never understood but always found infuriating. That it has taken an entire decade for that pack of droolers to fix this typographical mutation that unconscionably Plutoed the event with every mention exemplifies the dilution of journalistic professionalism nobody seems to care much about, but on the positive side, they finally got it right. Whoopee screw.
Also in local news, while New York City and other genuine metropolitan areas throughout the country go on high alert in response to “credible” reports of planned terrorist activity, Miami fires its police chief and engages in internecine warfare. Now, that’s leadership. Talk about professionalism, concern for the populace, and ordering one’s priorities.
