I tend to leave headlines out of it when I do this blog, for a couple of reasons. Sometimes the author is just following a convention, and other times they are actually quoting someone's opinion, as they say in the article, and want to distance the impartial journalistic tone from a loaded term. Nonetheless, I fully support the critique of weird and unnecessary scare quotes in op eds, found in New York Magazine, here. Thanks for the headsup, Chris!
Please send your submissions via email to bethanykeeley (at) gmail.com. I look at them all, but it might take a while to get to yours -- sorry! I love you all, but I only have so much energy in a day.
If you want your picture to make the blog DO NOT @tweet them, or leave them in a comment. I need them all in the same place. Make sure your emails are easily distinguishable from spam or viruses (I use gmail web interface, so images get previews).
I don't usually post the following: newspaper headlines, personal email, craigslist postings, unprofessional websites. I also tend to not crosspost things from other blogs, since I have so much unique material waiting for me to get to it.
Things I see a lot: silica gel "do not eat"; hair dryer labels; inside the bus "do not drill"; Wal-mart sign about IDs; coffee machine with "2" cup sizes; employees must "wash hands"; that failblog post.
