Local Newspaper Human Interest Story on JC

One of the original crewmembers of the Jimmy Carter got written up in his local newspaper as a result of the boat's commissioning. Of course, the writers for these small newspapers don't have much of a chance to do things like check facts, or understand if what they're writing is just silly, so we'll set aside the fact that they incorrectly stated that the Carter was the first submarine named for a President (we'll assume they meant "living former President"or inadvertantly changed "twelvth" into "first") and assume their description of the crew size as being 11 was a typo. It's still neat to see one of "my" guys become famous.

Going deep...

Years ago this was so infrequent. It's the new generation of journalists. Rush, never mind if it's accurate.

I remember having an article about me appear in a local paper back in the late 70's (I won a chess tournament -- yes, I know I'm a total geek) and the reporter who had interviewed me over the phone messed up 3 or 4 basic things. Nowadays, though, since fact checking is just an informed Google-click away, I think there's less excuse for it.
