Language Nazi strikes.

Yes, I'm the language Nazi.

Two articles have pissed me off recently.

One: [Some American Idol dick] admits he's gay in an interview.

So is he gay outside of the interview?

Should be: "In an interview, [some American Idol dick] admits he's gay."

Two: "Lightning kills boy while fishing with Father."

Was the lightning fishing with the father, or was the kid?

Grr.

  1. The word "admits" is what bothers me. It implies that there is something wrong with being gay.

  2. Besides, it may just be a phase. With the right wine and the right interviewer, there are darn few who aren't curious...
