You have to remember that most journalism is done on the fly.  Language Log has a post today on selective (and distorted) quotation in news stories . Here is some speculation from the post: " The journalist knows what (s)he wants to write, and what sort of facts and quotes are needed in support, and therefore manipulates the person interviewed so as produce suitable copy - in this case mainly by selecting a few suitable fragments from a long interview. " There is something to this.

She paraded through the house, grabbing just about everything. Starting in the living room, she quickly progressed to the kitchen, wrapping up every spoon, fork and bowl. My friend Ashley was moving and her last-minute packing looked like a sporting event. "No, this won't fit," she said, trying to stuff a large oval vase into a tiny square box. I'd known Ashley since fifth grade, and it had been years since we sat and had a serious talk. The topic? Men, of course. I was going through some things with my (now ex-)

We surely seem to have become a nation of the double standard. I read with interest several articles in The Sun concerning the trending Paul Deen issue ("Turning back the clock?" June 25). Seems odd that some of the same folks who wish to distance themselves now from Ms. Deen because of an alleged slur she uttered 30 years ago have no problem plugging products from Martha Stewart, a convicted felon. I do not wish to judge either one but I think a good percentage of America needs to take a good look at themselves in the mirror.

Although it's only minutes from the busiest parts of Howard County, the Highland Inn feels removed from the hustle and bustle of the area. From the pretty setting to the well-executed, classic food, dinner there is a welcome respite from everyday troubles. The Highland Inn's owner, Brian Boston, made his local reputation at the Milton Inn in Baltimore County. Like the Milton Inn, the Highland Inn is nestled in a quiet country setting. Peaceful and charming, the space, in an updated farmhouse, is a little less formal than the Milton Inn, but it is lovely enough to make a meal feel special.

Consider "Looking in the Mirror" a sharp (and often heavy-handed) reminder relationships don't exist in a vacuum. The bubble in which Patrick and Richie's new romance was sequestered last week was always bound to collapse. But Patrick looked like he'd be ready to face the world, or at least his judgmental friends, when it finally did. Gallivanting around San Francisco with Richie appeared to lift Patrick of his self-doubt, at least to the point where he would be more resistant to the opinions of others.

Del. Don H. Dwyer Jr., convicted twice of alcohol-related offenses over the past two years, urged fellow lawmakers Wednesday to approve his bill requiring mandatory minimum sentences for officials convicted of drunken driving. The Anne Arundel County Republican was one of two witnesses in favor of the bill at a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee. He argued that elected officials who violate the law should be punished more severely than ordinary citizens. "You are held to a higher standard, and you are not an average Joe," was the message the judge in Dwyer's case delivered to him, the lawmaker told the committee.

A Baltimore County school bus driver will not be charged after a bus rolled over while taking 10 students to Pikesville Middle last month, police said. Baltimore County police completed their investigation this week in the Oct. 4 crash and determined the driver was at fault when she checked the rearview mirror and lost control of the bus. Police did not identify the driver and did not issue any citations. Police said the bus was traveling 43 miles per hour in a 40 mile per hour zone in the 10800 block of Greenspring Ave. The driver told police she was checking the rearview mirror when the bus drifted to the right, causing the rear wheel drop off the road.

A new poll commissioned in part by the American Civil Liberties Union found growing support in Maryland for both decriminalizing marijuana and legalizing it outright. Two-thirds of residents surveyed supported eliminating jail time for marijuana possession, and a majority backed allowing Maryland to regulate and tax pot like alcohol. Commissioned by the ACLU and the Marijuana Policy Project, the survey's findings mirror national attitudes about legalizing the drug. In April, a national poll released by the Pew Research Center found that for the first time in four decades, a majority of Americans supported legalizing marijuana.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry was recently in Maryland trying to connive businesses into move to his state ( "O'Malley, Perry spar over jobs with 2016 in background," Sept. 18). The problem is, Texas cannot handle more people. Currently, there are too many people and not enough roads here in Texas, which perhaps explains why the roads are too congested and most days traffic is a nightmare. We are in a severe drought here in Texas. Water levels are plummeting and lakes are drying up. Groundwater levels are dropping.

If trying to sneak into school without anyone catching them wasn't enough to put them on edge, how about a text from Emily's mom saying that Mrs. DiLaurentis is offering the two a place to stay? Do you say no? Again trust is an issue, and in Rosewood, no one can be trusted. Wren (yes, he is back as well) pays his dearest patient a visit in Radley. Wren believes that Mona is covering for someone, and isn't telling the truth about her confession. When he realizes that Mona is quite playing for his team anymore, he reminds her that he is the only one she can trust.
