Aside from being completely erroneous -- Antheus already owns the Shoreland -- this headline has the Seussian virtue of being a fun nursery rhyme, especially when you throw in the Sutherland Apartments, which the Herald habitually confuses with the Shoreland, as they did in their banner headline of September 9, 2009.
Maybe a repeat of this gaffe twice in one year is why the Herald website is still running the July 7, 2010 issue?
Or perhaps everyone was just too giddy over the journalistic coup achieved with the wonderfully dramatic headline over Sam Cholke's banner article having to do with the preservation of the Chicago Theological Seminary in its pristine state, stained glass windows included:
CTS, which wanted to move its own stained glass windows from the old to the newer building? Would moving pieces of the building around be an execution, or just a desecration? Or, since the University's decision to buy it is the reason the building isn't going to be completely razed, perhaps the University is executing itself? Just who is the executioner, and what is being executed?
Certainly not an informative, fact-based headline.
Mr. Cholke, or whoever came up with this headline, was undoubtedly drunk with the poetic euphoria of a wildly inaccurate though colorful metaphor, enough so to botch the execution of the Sutherland headline on page 3.
The chicken at Herald's is deep fried and crispy this summer, for sure.
