My daughter sent me this breaking news story. Not only is the name of the town spelled incorrectly (it is SantA Fe), but what is a “wrap sheep”? I’m fairly certain that what they meant to say was “rap sheet,” which is defined on dictionary.com as “a record kept by law-enforcement authorities of a person’s arrests and convictions.” This one actually did make me giggle because I keep picturing a sheep in wrapping paper and a nice bow. Again, I feel like this is a result of news agencies rushing things through to be the first out with the story, but surely someone could have taken the time to proofread the headline. Take the time!
