Bigger fish to fry

So, I looked up the Union’s Web site the other night and saw several headlines in the “breaking news” section. One of the top headlines in the section was a story about somebody getting in an accident in Idaho because his companions were in the back seat having sex, causing him to lose control of his vehicle. Thankfully, no loss of life occurred in this preventable accident.

Is this the kind of news the Union calls breaking news? Seems that maybe we have bigger fish to fry right here in town. Headlines like this are an embarrassment for our local newspaper and the management that calls this news.

Editor’s note: We like to fry bigger fish, too (and do). Somebody must have been interested in the article, though: It was the second most-read story on our Web site that day.
