Extra! Extra!

I received this in an e-mail a few days ago and just wanted to share. I got a kick out of it. These are headlines found in newspapers around the country. I must say, Does no one proof read anymore???

Man Kills Self Before Shooting Wife and Daughter
This one I caught in the SGV Tribune the other day and called the Editorial Room and asked who wrote this. It took two or three readings before the editor realized that what he was reading was impossible!!! They put in a correction the next day. I just couldn't help but sending this along. Too funny.

I don't know who deserves the bigger punch in the face - the person who wrote the title or the folks that saw it after and let it go to print without correction.

But I laughed so maybe they all deserve a pat on the back instead?
