Watch your Words

Today, in news that just grosses you out:

An Uber driver charged with rape and best place to get a steak were some of the most read stories on Maryland Patches this week.

Really, Columbia Patch? It’s practically “Rape, steak, and weather at 8:00!”  Did anyone think about how this looks? If you want to be our “source for all things Columbia” you’ve got to do better than that.

I see that Patch is trying to raise revenue by creating a “membership” option. After a quick read of the details, I’m not convinced. If you want to “support local journalism” you already have some great options that operate on a much higher journalistic level.

In other local news, this upcoming event caught my eye:

June 15- World Elder Abuse Awareness Day Workshops and Shred Event

A few more just for fun. This one turned up in my Facebook memories today:

Thank you HoCo Times for today’s laugh.

“She credits her longevity to drinking tea and her family.”

And who could forget this classic from the Johnsonville company:

We don’t make sausage. We make family. And sausage.

Sweeney Todd-esque? Well, I just hope that shredded elders aren’t a key ingredient,
