Ouch! July 23, 2007

Nothing about software here – just plain old proof reading and common sense:

Why is it that headline writers love to create headlines like these:

Mindy McCready charged with battery

When I first saw that link on CNN I just couldn’t figure out why anybody would want to attach themselves to a battery and then be get an electric charge from it (or was it maybe somebody else who attached the battery?)…

The wording above is from the link on the main page the headline for the actual story makes it a little bit clearer that we are talking police blotter, not some kind of weird new bionic development.
