It takes a community paper to raise a child

This isn't an error, per se, but it is a fine example of the kind of wacky stuff that would only fly in a tiny community paper. Here's a letter to the editor of the Athol Daily News:


The last line slays me. I promise you, my future children: I will never say the words, "You're grounded! Go to your room and write a letter to the local paper!"

Oh yeah, man. The kid gets extra points for slipping 'certainly' in that last line, for sure.
If I wasn't 'certain' that Athol was a town somewhere, I'd guess he mispelled a word his loving, cool dad recently called him.
