It's a doggy-dog world

An opinion columnist in the Washington Post pointed out all the errors cropping up in newspapers:

"The Lewiston (Maine) Sun-Journal has written of "spading and neutering." The Miami Herald reported on someone who "eeks out a living" -- alas, not by running an amusement-park haunted house. The Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star described professional football as a "doggy dog world." The Vallejo (Calif.) Times-Herald and the South Bend (Ind.) Tribune were the two most recent papers, out of dozens, to report on the treatment of "prostrate cancer.""

Read more here. I was really disappointed to read about "peddle pushers" in the New York Times a few months back (rather than "pedal pushers" - a term for calf-length pants that makes a lot more sense).
