Red Pen, Inc.--Jailbird Edition

Oh, relax, you sillies!  I'm not in jail.  But tonight I'll be posting about snafus associated with a couple of guys who are in jail.  Like this one:


Ahhh, Charles Manson.  Looked creepy way back when, and got creepier-looking with age.  But I found Helter Skelter, the (very long and very detailed) book about the Manson murders, to be a fascinating read. 

And then there's this guy--less creepy than Mr. Manson, but I can't figure out why anyone cares what he buys at the jail store...

It should be no surprise, considering the homonym error, that this article was written by a Yahoo.  *sigh*

In totally unrelated news, baseball season's started...finally!  Which team are you rooting for this season?

Ah, I've missed your Red Pen posts!

You know who I'm cheering for this season. As ever, I need my head examined.

I hope your Mariners do well, Marie! I hope I haven't brought my annual fantasy baseball jinx upon them by having Ackley on my team this year! ;)

Jeez, how'd I miss the whole "cooling his heals"? Sigh. There are just too many mistakes coming from Yahoo to keep up with them all. On a far more interesting topic, I'm a huge baseball fan, a moderate SF Giants fan, and a perpetually disappointed Red Sox fanatic.

I wish your Ocean adventurers do well. I also wish I haven't introduced my yearly dream football jinx upon them by having Ackley on my group.

What the heck is "parol" anyway ?
