Who the hell needs a newspaper anymore?

So maybe you heard about a little bridge collapse here in Atlanta recently.  Ouch, that will NOT help our traffic situation. Anyway, I was browsing around the internet, looking at stories about the incident and I came across this, from the Atlanta Urinal Constitution, online at www.ajc.com:

"I-85 bridge collapse: First-time riders hit MARTA"
http://www.ajc.com/news/bridge-collapse-first-time-riders-hit-marta/VdtM99dIJmR2aXWtDIByfL/
She'd always wanted to ride Marta to her job, about a mile away from the station on the Glenridge Connector. Now, thanks to Thursday night's I-85 bridge collapse, she was going to have to. Unwilling to battle traffic out of the city in the midst of the disaster, she'd dinner a pair of tennis shoes, consulted a Marta map and, after one false start when she got on the wrong train, was ready to walk the rest of the way to he job a little before 8 a.m.  [italics are mine]
You have got to be kidding me.  That's what a professional journalist wrote???  No thank you.  That is pathetic.
