  1. So the LVSun waits 11 days to post this story?

    Maybe they couldn't afford the ink?

    Journalism at it's worst.

  2. Some readers are just incapable of understanding language written in news articles. Just because all news reporters are incapable of being at all convenience stores and know when someone is being violent doesn't mean the writer didn't have enough "ink" at the time - they just didn't know about or were asked to write about it by the police. Perhaps one reader should look into a story - before quickly criticizing the cover.

  3. I guess all the other news outlets were out of ink the past 11 days (an odd statement considering ink has nothing to do with posting a story online).
