A couple silly links before we all get back to the business of the new year:
I always enjoy Texas Monthly's Bum Steer Awards. I realize there has to be an Aggie or mention of A&M on the cover so that a) Longhorns will buy it and b) Aggies will buy it to see what they're saying about us. Though Dennis Franchione's their cover boy (with an assist from a hungry Reveille), they do riff on the UT player arrests (ours came too late for press time, perhaps). And they give a thumbs-down to the "Vick 'Em" T-shirts at Tech.
As always, the state's media outlets commit a few Bum Steers: a Lubbock TV reporter arrested while under cover; the Press Club of Dallas Katies flap; the Star-Telegram agreeing to deliver Bibles. And, as a copy editor, I feel deeply for the Houston Chronicle editor who wrote the Anna Nicole cutline they cite.
That cutline also made it into Regret The Error's 2007 hits compilation. There are some corkers, including Cherie Blair NOT in the shower, numerous sightings of Obama Bin Laden and one "Titanic" goof that made it all the way around the world until a 15-year-old caught it.
May your New Year be error-free and full of good luck!
