Reader Charlotte Yee passed on this bit of humor at the expense of paid newsies like yours truly.Â Seven Orlando Sentinel reporters contributed to a three-paragraph story about a train wreck.
A blogger named Ranger BobÂ whose interests include bridges and trains, took issue with the following line: “The conductor saw an object on the tracks and blew his horn several times, but it did not move . . .”
Ranger BobÂ notes that none of the 7 knew thatÂ it isÂ the engineer and not the conductor whoÂ drives the train. “Must be a union shop,” he wrote in a posting titled, “Why newspapers lose money.”
