Gerry Connolly “slugged and road?” The Post Continues Its Sad Decline


The once great newspaper known as the Washington Post continues its sad decline into illiteracy and irrelevancy.

[Connolly] has also taken the Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission’s commuter bus, slugged and road with a constituent from Bristow into the district on what a Census Bureau report said last year is the longest average commute in the country.

Uh guys, it’s “r-o-d-e,” as in past tense of the verb “r-i-d-e.”  Well, at least the author of this article wasn’t sending out false tweets. Ugh.

    Spellcheck doesn’t filter homonyms for context, and aparently the WaPo doesn’t have those human text review and filter thingees. What do you call them?  That’s right, editors!

    The technology just isn’t there yet.

    This sort of mess is what happens when a paper fires far too many people with the skills needed to write objective, accurate stories, gets a publisher without the skill to actually run a paper, and then decides to fill the “vacuum” left by the implosion of the Moonie-funded far-right Times.

    The Post is a mere shadow of what it used to be. Disgusting.

    Might as well add another from WashPo Dr.Gridlock:

    Officials warn that that shifts will be approximately 40 to 60 feet to the right of current lane locations to make room for the construction of the Tysons West Metro Station in the media of Route 7.

    Middle? Median?
