Amateur hourI've written before about amateur hour over at the building on Cooper and Lawrence Streets in Glens Falls, but The Post-Star's blunders keep on coming. There are times when I wonder if there are copy editors at the paper or if the journalists' work just gets published without being looked at by another set of eyes.
From a report about a local college league baseball game:
It was the kind of moment Glens Falls Golden Eagles left fielder Jonathan White has always dreamed of: his team down a run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth and the bases loaded.
Every instinct in his body was screaming to go for the deep bomb -- two high foul tips into the bleachers showed that.
But sometimes in the game of baseball, not swinging the bat can be just as powerful.
Facing a full count, White allowed the final pitch to blow by for the fourth ball and the win.
It may not this player's dream to score two runs with a walk, but it's pretty darned impressive feat.
Too bad that it's also impossible.
Then you have this piece on the case of the missing local boy Jaliek Rainwalker.
The subtitle: Maternal grandmother pleads not guilty after arrest
The first line of the story: The adoptive grandmother of Jaliek Rainwalker was charged with burglary Tuesday for going into the missing boy's home last week without permission.
So is this woman the maternal or adoptive grandmother of the boy?
