KILLEEN, Texas, Nov 5 (Reuters) – The suspect in a shooting rampage at Ford Hood Army post on Thursday in which 12 people were killed and 31 wounded is in a hospital in stable condition, contrary to previous reports he had been killed, an Army general said.
Shooting at “Ford Hood”? I believe the Army uses the alternate spelling, F-o-r-t. This was a featured link on Google News highlights so I am sure lots of people saw it.
I had to look three times to make sure it wasn’t a joke on purpose. You know, hood possibly being an automobile component and Ford being an auto manufacturer just made it funny to me.
Ouch. Not a great week for headline editing, if you look at the two items before this one as well. Yes, this one did get noticed: GBU Editor
