Phyllis who?

Phyllis manager backs Hamels, may start a Game Seven

Seriously, Phyllis manager? Who is doing your editing, are you outsourcing it to some third world country?

It should read Phillies……the mispelling of words and misused phrases in sentences or just sentences that do not make sense seems to be an ever increasing problem here and on other sites…..keep the work in this country please

Lots of readers noticed this error, which was introduced in an online news feed. Understandably. We corrected: GBU Editor

I object to the Nov 5 headline ` Clinton wishes he had left White House “in a coffin” ‘. I read this headline as a wish that he had been assassinated in office. The text of the article tells quite a different story. Catchy, sloppy, or confusing headlines are the norm in your business, but this particular headline is way out of bounds, because it could, in small way, legitimize the assassination of a President in the mind of some nut case.
