MAll TRAGEDY


You know it's big news when not one, but TWO lowercase L readers submit the same lowercase L occurence. Today Fox News sadly reports that five people were shot dead in an Illinois mall. What's even worse is that the image supplied by Associated Press, labeled MAll TRAGEDY, was a real tragedy itself.

But it seems that Fox News may be on top of their game after all, because moments after the image was submitted by both Rudy G. and Patrick Fitzgerald, FOXNews.com replaced the caption with a more appropriate uppercase L version (see below).


I wonder if they caught it on their own, or if they received complaints from normal people like us?

Why would you take your finger off the shift key (or take caps lock off) just to type those two letters? This isn't sloppy handwriting, it's intentional lower-casing!
