Hops spill brews a 10-car pileup
« on: November 11, 2011, 10:39:02 AM »
I'm disappointed in Ms. Koopmans, she left out so much critical information.  Like what kind of hops were they, and how much spilled?  Reporters today, it's like they don't know what is news and what's not.

It's not too often that you hear of an accident caused by a hop spill.  :-\

who's != whose

Speaking of bad reporting. I mean, it's a 117-word article. How long would it have taken someone to proofread it?

Probably Amarillo...dammit!!!

Additional info:

"Witnesses reported see a man with long hair sneaking around the crash scene and stuffing hops into his pockets.  When confronted, he yelled "I'm just being pragmatic" and ran off.  Officials are currently searching for this man.
