Never Proofread Radio

Thanks to a desire not to make the hundredth post on my other site a brief, bitter froth at the state of education today, I’m taking this to a smaller audience.

THINGS I HEARD ON NPR’S MORNING EDITION TODAY:

1) A spokesperson talking about “A palpable [tension?]…that you can feel.”

2) A reporter telling us someone had decided to “try a new tact.”

3) A source for a story on reform in the CIA saying, “We were halfway down that road, and now it’s dead in the water.”

Seriously, NPR, get a dictionary.
