Palo Alto Weekly Editor:

The car did not accelerate out of the corner of James Fowler's eye. Please re-write your copy.

moo, please re-read the copy. It said James Fowler SAW the car accelerate etc. I've been a publication editor, and I'd pass that line -- especially in a breaking-news story.

Here we have a credible witness James Fowler and someone named Moo talking semantics and asking him to re-write his copy when 6 people were hurt. Ridiclous!!!
