Honest to God! It's a meat theft so the police "beef up" their search. CLEVER!

Nice to be reassured of the level of sophistication that governs the Trib's editorial direction. Way to go, you elite journos, you!

This is nothing but whining for the sake of whining.

It's no more whining for the sake of whining that it is for the Trib to personify ineptitude for its own sake. When you're producing a subpar newspaper and desperately want to be taken seriously, it's not fun when your tackiness shows.

Some of us hoped when Dick shuffled off that the Trib might, if it survived at all, improve. It hasn't.

Doesn't bother me at all.

Shows the copy editor or whatever headline writer who did this is not comatose, has a spark of life and creativity left. Puns and plays on words don't bother me usually, as long as they contain no fat ... or gristle ... and are nicely marbled with the facts.

There's such a thing as being too cute, and it's something editors fall back on when they don't have much else going for them.

Sounds like bull, and I will not cow in the corner, or steer this conversation awry, or horn in on a longer point, which might actually stab me in the calf, and make me lose the git-along of those little doegies. My stage name is Beau Vine, Wrangler. Sorry if I milked this.
