AMARILLO, TEXAS -- An Amarillo woman is recovering after being trampled by a bull Thursday morning. Around 10 A.M., Potter County Sheriff's deputies and the Potter County Fire Department responded to the call on Willowgrove in Rolling Hills.
A bull on private property allegedly broke out of his pen and charged a woman, knocking her to the ground. The Potter County Sheriff's Department deputies were able to get the bull off of the woman and back into his pen. The woman was sent to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

PLEASE learn the difference between "pin" and "pen". Not once, but twice, is the error made in this article.
Woman attacked by bull

You do a feature story about a woman that is attacked by a bull but you failed to report about a Perryton man who was my father that was killed and mauled by a bull 3 weeks ago. If you die from a bull that must not be news worthy. But you get attacked and live that is headline news.

I am so glad as the editor of an online newspaper(s) that

A: If my mental and/or physical spell checker misses a's not in print and I can go back in and fix it...thus leaving the spell check police seem like they have nothing better to do than criticize and be ugly.

2. I actually posted the sad story front page on 2 of my online papers concerning the man that was killed by the bull in addition to Facebook and Twitter. It was news to us!

Sometimes when I am tempted to get in on all the fun...I remember the wise words of my dad...
"Fool's names and fool's faces are always seen in foolish places."
