cruel and unusual punishment

September 19, 2009

Quoted over at Lowering the Bar, this is from an article about misplaced prepositional phrases in the New York Times:

The SoHo bar bouncer convicted last month…was sentenced to life without parole in Brooklyn State Supreme Court on Wednesday afternoon.

An unusual penalty.

Notice anything interesting in my introduction?

    What did the folks at Lowering the Bar quote over it? Either way, that sounds kind of rude to me.
