1. The photo is, as usual, awesome.

    The title is one of my favorite pet peeves about TV “news”. Sometime in the past, some newsperson formed the alliterated phrase “behind bars”, and it was cute. Now, local TV anchors seem unable to say “arrested” or “in jail” and can ONLY say “behind bars” when relating a crime story. It really bugs me, especially knowing that few modern jails actually have any bars.

  2. Wil, I would also add that news people are fond of saying “unlocking the mystery” of something. You don’t “unlock” mysteries. You explain or solve them. You “unlock” locks.
