Autism center targeted by arsonist receiving generous grant

16 Aug

Or, how not to write the title to a news story. A Las Vegas TV station has a story, Autism center targeted by arsonist receiving generous grant.

Of course they mean that the autism center, which had previously been the target of an arsonist, has received a generous grant. On my first read it sounded like an arsonist who had received a generous grant had attacked an autism center.

Sometimes it’s nice for autism journalism mistakes to be amusing. And, moreover, it’s good to hear that this center is getting support to come back.

    I plead guilty for structuring my sentences poorly. I am also the undisputed “queen” of the run on…and on…and on… sentence. 🙂
