correction/deletion

we removed a post we put up shortly before midnight about the diaper-wearing astronaut who accosted the other astronaut in florida, cause we said the houston daily forgot the diaper angle. two readers said the diaper angle was in the chron stories they read, so we guess we just "read over" the fleeting diaper reference, or else read an early edition story that didn't have the diaper reference ...

whatever the case, the diaper detail is in the , current chron story, so we decided to delete the post altogether, because we did not want to disparage the Houston daily for no good reason; there are, after all, plenty of other good reasons to knock the Houston daily.

The Brazosport News regrets the allegedly unwarranted attack on the Houston daily.

On the other hand, like one of our readers said, "I woulda put the diapers in the lede, but I'm an amateur!"

we don't think we'll post anything else today as we reassess our standards. thanks for reading.

I started to comment, about 0715, that it was in the edition I read, but I figured that you knew better than I what it said, what with you being a pro, and all.

Did any story mention if she happened to have the diapers on hand, or did she stop and buy them for the occasion.

If she stopped and bought the diapers it shows malodorous aforethought. She would have been better of pissing herself, you know, for the looney tunes defense.

You need a reader representative to handle these sorts of matters!
