    Listen, I try to be impartial when it comes to the WWL, but this just gets me. With all of their resources, all of their editors, all of their talented designers and everything, the big boys in Bristol still do this..

    In the Daily Dime...

    "Dikembe Mutombo points in the general direction of Chuck Hayes, whose eight points and 12 rebounds were notable in Houston's 83-75 win in Atlanta. The Hawks aim for win No. 21 Friday against Charlotte."

    Come on, guys. Even my mom knows the Rockets are going for 21 in a row.

    The real question is why this surprises you.

    True, true.

    It's a cutline on the lead photo, and while people may know they were going for 21, they probably didn't know when and against whom.

    I don't think this is as egregious as you are making it out to be.

    Why? It's news that Vick's state trial is being postponed from what was going to be its April 2 start date.


    Some of you are really quick to criticize......

    Bro, they got the wrong fucking team.

    They said the Hawks were going for 21 in a row. Not the Rockets, the Hawks.

    Man, I was scanning it so quickly, I missed it too. My bad, you're right.

    It says his "trail" is being postponed. Has for about three hours, now.

    I saw it as trial on ESPN News, was figuring they were using the same feed.

    It has trail on ESPN right now as well.

    Here's a suggestion: E-mail the Webmaster. I've done it before. They fix stuff. Instead of coming on here and getting your jollies, try actually being helpful. Would you want people laughing at your site, or letting you know so you could get it fixed?

    Hell, I e-mailed my old paper yesterday because they had my old high school's name misspelled on their main hed on the main page. It was fixed in minutes.

    I'm available, as a consultant.

    They want me to let them know where to send the checks, we can talk.
