An Un'Sightly' Headline

What would I ever do without the Honolulu Star-Advertiser? They're always good for a tsk-tsk shaking of the head every now and then.

Their latest boo-boo? On Tuesday just past, they used the word "sites" in a headline when they should have used "sights." That's the headline writer's fault (again).

I do feel sorry for the columnist, Michael Tsai, whose writing I do enjoy. And I feel really sorry for model Zoe Cipres, the featured subject of the story. Now the clipping to paste in her scrapbook really is tainted.

Of course, the headline would make sense in a creative sort of way if Zoe had some websites that she's focusing on acting.

But as far as I know (because I read the column), she doesn't.
