Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

Hello, can we have some journalism, please?

[ #23954 ]

OK, there's some bad journalism out there. Frequently this involves misleading stories, incomplete stories, or your occassional alleged gay male prostitute getting hired to lob softball questions at President "restore dignity to the White House" Bush. However, sometimes there is Bad Journalism. Today's example of Bad Journalism comes from an AP News article posted on myway.com regarding the death of Terry Schiavo. Here's a snippet describing Terry Schiavo:

A shy woman who avoided the spotlight, Schiavo spent her final months as the focus of a media frenzy and an epic legal battle between her husband and parents over whether she should live or die.

I'm not going to mock that writing. It mocks itself.
