Compositional Whimsy

Oh, those kidders in the Pensacola News Journal's composition department! In today's issue they've placed the "Special Election Notice" to fill the seat of disgraced state rep Ray Sansom on the page our local politicians are sure to read first to see if their names are mentioned: the Felony Arrest column.

Dept. of Further Amplification

2-28 am

Ah, too bad. It seems, on a later visit, the ads have changed. No matter. We have the screen shot -- and the felony arrests. The State Attorney's office doubtless will refer none of the newly arrested to a non-binding "inquest" by a county judge. They aren't Pensacola policemen whose indictment might be politically embarrassing.
