The Washington Post - - FREE FOR ALL -

The third sen­tence of the Oct. 31 front-page ar­ti­cle “U-Md. re­gents side with school’s foot­ball coach,” about the Univer­sity Sys­tem of Mary­land Board of Re­gents over­rul­ing univer­sity Pres­i­dent Wal­lace D. Loh’s de­ci­sion to re­move head foot­ball coach DJ Durkin, de­scribed the sud­denly re­tir­ing Loh as “the most high-pro­file ca­su­alty” of a months-long foot­ball con­tro­versy that “be­gan with the June death of a 19-year-old foot­ball player.”

Re­ally poor word choice. The big­gest ca­su­alty of this whole af­fair is the teenager who was not named un­til about 700 words in: Jor­dan Mc­Nair. Chalin Smith, Alexan­dria
