“a vice that has been designed for us.”

In today’s Tennessean, the all-too-predictable story about the deferral of the Metro Council’s ethics bill was highlighted by a typo in a quote from Councilman Ed Whitmore.

I’m sure he was saying that the bill is a ‘VISE’, but the quote was printed as ‘(the bill)…is a VICE that has been designed for us”.

Kinda of a Freudian-projection-typo…with this ethically challenged gang, a meaningful ethics bill probably does appear as a VICE.

  1. One would think if it WERE a “vice” they would embrace it.

    I love freudian typos and editing.
