What's New?

A simple transposition will fix the "rhyme time" error in this Connecticut Post article. "New two" should be "two new."

My guess — and this is merely a guess — is that the original AP story had "based on the claims of new accusers," and somewhere along the line an editor wanted to include a bit of numerical detail. Problem is, he or she threw two in to view after it was due, and in lieu of "two new" we got "new two." It's true.
