Wost sentence ever

    This is why citizen journalism will ultimately fail. Miserably.

    I just edited a sentence that read, "Use your brains and gut feelings, there isn't no way you won’t succeed the rest of the year."

    Wow. After I read that I was speechless.

    I don't know how the "big-wigs" think that the move to citizen journalism is a good idea.

    Okay, so it was a play on words that was horribly executed. Remind me to never try that again.

    We have a column written by a woman our now-long-gone ME at the time picked to write a weekly column. Her grammar and writing style are horrible but she screams at the top of her lungs if we make any changes to it so it will, oh, I dunno, make sense, maybe!

    Now we post the phone number or e-mail address of all columnists at the end of their ramblings. People want to complain? Contact them directly.

    Also, this particular woman chose to turn in a column this week about her experience during a colonoscopy (izzat right?). Hopefully, this will be the column to cause readers to riot and give us a cause to dump this screwball.

    If the colonoscopy column does not open with, "This was a real pain in the ass to write," fail.

    The ME who is no longer there picked this "writer" who is horrible, yet no one at your paper has the balls to tell her she is out?

    Sheeeet. Grow a set and cut her ass loose pronto.
