I often read the news on AOL, after signing in to check my mail. The public comments that often follow the stories paint a pretty bleak picture of the thought processes of other readers. Unfortunately, there is often a lot of mindless hostility expressed.
And today there was some mindless spelling.
A story about Barry Bonds gave us these two comments:
1. "...strip Bonds of the Home run record and BAND him from Baseballs Hall of Fame for EVER !!!!!!!!!!!!"
2. "HE WAS BORN AND BREAD A BALLPLAYER."
No further comment should be necessary on my part.
