I've Got a Grade E Beef

In a story about grade-altering allegations in Connecticut, the New Haven Independent got it right. (See image below.) A bit was lost in translation, however, when CT News Junkie linked the story to its site.

If you fail to shimmy an e in before the hyphen, the story takes on a new meaning. We go from an article about tampering with transcripts to an item about transforming magna cum laude individuals into summa cum laude graduates ... or something like that.

CT News Junkie dropped a letter when compiling its headline. For that, I must drop CT News Junkie a letter grade. I'm changing your grade because you changed grade.

Thanks to my friend Abby for sharing this typo. You get an A for effort, Abby.
