Must give props to the Argus

As most here know, I'm a frequent critic of the media, including the Argus. That said, I have to give them some props here for putting this on their front page.

Police nab wrong man — Co-workers verify alibi; authorities drop charges of intended robbery; suspected gunman still sought

Police concluded they had arrested the wrong man for an attempted robbery Green Oak Township and released him Thursday from the county jail.

We all remember the Richard Jewell situation, and we all know that major arrests are always front page news. Good to see the Argus make sure readers see that charges are dropped by placing this on the cover and not on page 8A.

Now I'm still waiting for Nicholas Kristof and Fox Butterfield of the New York Slimes issue corrections about their bald faced lies against gun owners.
