Critical Reading Skills... Waning

Top News Article | Reuters.com

It's all kinds of wrong that I read a headline that said "Saddam trial hears of horror in Room 63" and thought it said "Saddam trial hears of horror in Rom 63."

After all, Rom #63 was cover-titled "Space Nightmare." Saddam could've been involved. Or maybe one of the attorneys is on some kind of crazy tangent, introducing mid-eighties toy tie-in comics as evidence. At first, the judge was confused, but after a stirring speech about the threat the Dire Wraiths posed, he said, with a slightly bemused tone, "I'll... allow it."
