Headline told kids it's OK to be rude

February 01, 2011I was appalled by the blatant WTF on Friday's front page. It was rude and inappropriate.

We try to teach our young people to be polite and you make it now OK to be rude.

Maybe not everyone knows what it means, but I do. What's next? The statement written out in full? Shame on you.

No link so I'll type it verbatim:

"EDITOR'S NOTE
The headline for Friday's winter weariness story on page A1 was conceived at the end of my driveway as I lifted the first shovel-full of heavy, wet snow.

Surely it was the popular sentiment of most Cape Codders Thursday morning. However, some took offense at the word play used to convey that feeling.

We were aiming for levity in this tiresome season, but sincere apologies if we missed the mark.

Paul Pronovost, Editor"

Friday's headline: We're Tired (of) Freezing!

WTF in huge letters. LOL

Edit: I'm not counting this as an correction. A lapse of judgment perhaps, but not a factual error. I LOLed when I saw WTF as the headline.
