Houston Chronicle staffers, get out your Big Chief tablets and number two pencils. It’s time for a quick geography lesson.
FORT WORTH — Three bodies have been found in a Fort Worth home.
Police won’t say how or when they died or release any information on their gender or ages.
But police in nearby Arlington are involved in a standoff with a man in a car parked in a driveway. Fort Worth authorities say he may be a suspect in the deaths.
Officials have locked down a school near the Arlington standoff.
While I understand that you cribbed this directly from the AP (as you do with 90% of your articles), you could have at least taken a moment to correct/edit the story in some way to reflect the fact that Ft. Worth is, in fact, not Arlington. Arlington is also, in fact, not Ft. Worth. They are not the same city. They are not in the same city. Ft. Worth is not a suburb of Arlington, and vice versa. In mathematical terms, Ft. Worth ≠ Arlington.
Simply put, buy a map. And not the laminated kind of the 50 states that your mommy puts under your cereal bowl to catch any spilled milk at breakfast.
Class is now dismissed. You may pick up your juice boxes from the cafeteria on the way to recess.
