Ripped From the Headlines

Chalk it up to the late hour (and the long day).

Or the vaguely Greco-Slavic-Italian byline: ‘Nicholas Confessore.’

Nevertheless, I read the following New York Times headline:

“Parties Clash as Albany Edges Closer to Shutdown.”

incorrectly as

“Parties Clash as Albania Edges Closer to Shutdown.”

Backing up, I realized the article (correctly) referred to Albany.

The capital of New York state.

The land mass Manhattan is attached to.

Couldn’t happen here . . . right?
