To Err Is "Human" At The C-J

On a day when the Courier-Journal brags about its "high standards", it is ironic that the misquote from Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell is not the only misprint in that newspaper. Check out the picture on page E1 of writer Jennifer Haley, who is captioned as a "Human [sic] Festival playwright."

One of the perquisites of being Senate Republican Leader is that when the C-J misquotes you, the paper fixes it. Poor Ms. Haley did not get the same treatment. Alas, she remains merely "Human" in the C-J's online edition as well as in the earlier print version.

After the performance of Ms. Haley's work at the Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre, perhaps the C-J could hire her to proofread.
