Kirk,
Regarding the NFL summary writeups on page 5B of today's edition, I'm offended by the Saints' entry:  "...as New Orleans (1-1) won for the first time this season".  You know, because the "'Aints" have had so many losing seasons over the years, it's significant that they won for the first time this year.  It's week 2!!!  The writer didn't say that about Atlanta or Tampa Bay and they're also both 1-1.  Maybe it could have been better stated by saying "...as New Orleans (1-1) won their home opener."  I've been a Saints fan since they drafted Archie Manning in 1971 and this pisses me off.

Who wrote this crap?  There is no byline on the page.  Again.  Why does The Wichita Eagle cloak their crappy McClatchy product in anonymity?

Sincerely,

Stuart Johnson
Wichita KS

Sorry to offend, Stuart. Our copy desk writes the roundups. You’re really reading too much into that sentence.

You’re really reading too much into that sentence.

 

That's what people say after they've been caught being a bit too cavalier.  I'm pretty confident that I'm not the only one who feels this way.  I'll follow up with you later.

"copy desk":  Again with the anonymity.  No one is responsible if everyone is responsible.  I don't like it and that's why you'll be hearing from me again.

It’s my responsibility, Stuart, so keep e-mailing me. But again, you’re being too sensitive.
