Evil Men in Tiverton

A typo in Tom Killin Dalglish’s Sakonnet Times piece on the Tiverton police department sexual harassment suits is just too ripe for speculation of the subconscious not to note it:

Defendants named in the lawsuits besides the Town of Tiverton are James Amarantes (the former town treasurer), Louis Durfee (president of the Town Council), Mr. Steckman (the former town administrator), and Chief Blakey.

It’s man versus woman in Tiverton, with James, Louis, Glenn, and Thomas named in the suits. Except, of course, that Louis is actually Louise.
As I said, it’s just a typo, but it’s good for a conservative chuckle, anyway.

Wow Justin, methinks you are reading too much into that one, even for a little chuckle…I mean, a missing “e” makes it a feminist crusade?
But humor is like beauty – eye of beholder, as they say. Cheers!

Hazards of time spent as a copy editor, I suppose.

I’m usually among the skeptics when it comes to conspiracy theories. But just can’t help thinking that ‘e’ was dropped intentionally.
Lets not forget that liberals are crafty in their tactics, especially the left-brain media types.
Happy Easter! Christ is Risen! take that Godless liberals!
