Rip and Read

In radio when stations don't have news people, they just rip the latest stories from the wire service(s) and read them on the air.

I always took the time to edit them before airing, last night KCCI/TV8's John Meyer didn't for an Associated Press story about Lolo Jones.

A sculpture plans to carve an image of Jones in ice during an ice carving demonstration at the fair, which begins on Thursday.

A SCULPTOR is someone who makes a sculpture and the scientific community is united in that fact.

The Ragister performed the print version of rip and read for today's edition.

Meyer also went on to do a story on two Iowa State Football quarterbacks introducing it by noting the TV8 sports department had "found a common thread that separates them".

A COMMON thread can tie them together, or it can bind them, but it doesn't separate them and every expert agrees on that.
