Not Frank

The following appeared on the Taunton Gazette's website today: At the time of this writing, it can still be viewed here, but that may change in the near future. I took a full browser screenshot.

How likely is it that someone would coincidentally put a photo of someone being crowned "queen" next to a story about an openly gay congressman? There is no story on the page having anything to do with that picture, so it is not just a question of screen layout. I wonder if the Gazette is going to show some integrity and get to the bottom of this?

Julie noticed this, and sent the link along.

As you said once in a different context, these are the idiots I went to school with. I can see that nothing has changed in 18 years (man, I can't believe it's been that long). Only difference is, now they can do it to powerful people instead of just slamming their classmates in the yearbook.

I'm not saying that they're *literally* the people I went to HS with... I don't recognize any of the names. But they are obviously Tauntonians at heart.

There's no mention of it in today's paper. I don't know how to get to yesterday's front page (not sure if it's possible at all). I did manage to find the article, but it didn't have a photo at all.

Sometimes, people make genuine mistakes.

Other times, people are just assholes.
