I just saw a post on my friend’s Facebook timeline. It showed a newspaper headline that had, no doubt, been innocent when the editor typed it but could also be construed in a highly sexual manner. And it made me laugh.
It reminded me of an incident that happened (and I had to pull my calculator out for this one) 45 years ago.
In high school, as editor for the school newspaper Features Page, I received the galley to correct for the Friday edition.I had written a feature article about “Slave Day.” Imagine having a well-intentioned, fundraising event in this day and age with that name? Now it would probably be “Voluntary Indentured Servitude Auction”.
