Jan 08, 2011 : where's today's junk drawer??

I guess this must be it?   Less than 9 hrs left today, but I have an OT rant, so I guess I need to start one regardless.

I don't want to make light of a tragedy, but I just read the story of the shooting in AZ on the KOIN website.  As there are quotes from locals and no credit given to AP or other wIre service I will assume the story was written locally.  What annoys me is that the city where the shooting occurred was written as Tucscon, Tucson, and Tuscon - all in the same story.   Now I can understand covering your bases when you don't know how to spell it  - but what happened to looking it up???     The Foxfire spell checker even red-lined the first spelling for me (giving the other 2 as options)  - so the writer didn't even use a spell check?    C'mon people, this was a headline story, not a tweet or text where spelling is generally optional.   This kind of sloppiness totally negates any sort of credibility KOIN internet news might have had for me (and let me be the first to call me a dinosaur.)
