An unfortunate "oops."

Rocky Mountain News substitutes one tragic headline for another

A lot of newspaper errors are kinda funny -- as long as we're not the ones making them, that is. But one on the Rocky Mountain News website at this writing is more sad than amusing: A piece headlined "Boyfriend Suspected in Slaying of Girl, 4" is affixed to a completely different Associated Press report -- one that details a double-fatal car accident in Weld County. By the way, the crash story is properly labeled in the Rocky's September 29 print edition.

Since, presumably, Rocky technicians will fix this mistake shortly, click "More" to see a screen capture of the aforementioned piece. -- Michael Roberts
