Does the Shanghai Daily not have an editor that reads articles before they are printed? Today’s paper has a story on page 3 about Shanghai tourists that were killed in a landslide while trying to cross the Luxi Gorge in Zhejiang. At the end of the article one of the victims, Zhang Lin, is described. The article continues:
“I know he loves traveling, but we never imagined anything like this happening,” said his father, who requested anonymity. (emphasis added)
What can I say, you must be a pretty dumb editor to write this or to let this slip through the proofreading process!
