Bottom Story of the Day

The following is an excerpt from OpinionJournal’s “Best of the Web” at The Wall Street Journal written by the editor, James Taranto.

Bottom Story of the Day
“Forecasters Predict ‘Near-Average’ Hurricane Season”—headline, USA Today, April 14

If Only His Editors Would Let Him Write About Another Topic
“I’m already completely exhausted by this presidential campaign season. The candidates seem to share that fatigue. Nerves are fraying as story lines grow stale.”—Charles Blow, New York Times, April 14

Hypothesis and Proof

  • “Review: At 50, The Who Brings It Full Circle”—headline, Alton (Ill.) Telegraph, March 27
  • “Former Presidential Contenders Martin O’Malley and Mike Huckabee Might Start a Band”—headline, ABCNews.com, April 13

Call Them ‘International Objects’
“The Erie County Hazardous Materials Response Team was called out to investigate a suspicious letter Monday morning,” Erie, Pa.’s WICU-TV reports:

The Multicultural Resource Center received a letter with foreign objects in it, police said. Someone then called Hazmat to the building at 10th and Ash to determine if it was dangerous.

Tests came back negative, according to police.

Wait a second, they called the cops to complain about “foreign objects”? The police ought to investigate whether the Multicultural Resource Center is really multicultural.
