Patterico's Pontifications


My Daughter Wants Me to Point Out This Blatant Error in the L.A. Weekly Story

Filed under: — Patterico @ 7:10 pm

She’s very upset about it:

The couple’s two young children tell L.A. Weekly that police burst into their bedrooms with flashlights to make sure they were safe.

My daughter heard about this sentence, put her hands on her hips, and said: “I’m not that young!!!”

If you ask her, that is the most outrageous factual misstatement of all.


  1. Did it say anything else besides going into their bedrooms?

    What age would you think they were from that article?

    In 1970, the New York Post referred to my parents as a “retired Jewish couple” which wasn’t quite accurate.
