Headlines you wish you’d missed.

On the front page of the Washington Post Website today there’s a killer headline that I’m sure someone over at WPNI is incredibly proud of. It’s not the kind of headline I’d like to see about DC though: “D.C. Drinking Water Meets EPA Standards”

It refers, of course, to this article on DC Drinking Water that says we’re finally free and clear of all the lead problems that the city had back in 2002.

Thanks, Washington Post, for reminding the people who live outside DC that we’re really just a third world city in some regards. That really helps that whole “tourist image.”

    This story would qualify as, you know, “news.” I’m not sure what you expect The Post to do. Ignore it? There are so many things to complain about. This isn’t really one of them.

    It is news, yes, but to say “DC Meets Drinking Water Standards”, well, DC’s met them for *over a year now* That’s not news at all, it’s just sensationalism, pure and simple.
