Wichita Eagle - old news

The Wichita Eagle ran a story on Jan Beemer, candidate for KS House, in Tuesday's Local and State section. Apparently, she was arrested for driving on a suspended license after she was pulled over for speeding.

What caught my attention was the fact that this occured Wednesday night. Well, the story was published on Tuesday, six days after the fact. That's all well and good, but the article should have specified last Wednesday. At first glance, it was kind of confusing.

Also, poor editing on Monday's Sunflower. The article about Muslim's honoring the holy month of Ramadan had a few errors and I questioned a few of the quotes published.

The second sentence of the third paragraph read: "All Muslims who are able to go without food and drink every day for one month." Obviously, not a complete sentence. What about these Muslims?

A quote from Mohammad Awad read: "It's a month of giving, sharing and loving each other." Although I'm sure this is an actual quote, it sounded kind of hokey; maybe I just had my mind in the gutter.
