What’s wrong with this story…?

Seriously. Click HERE, to read the news story posted at TampaBay.com and tell me I’m not crazy…

Hint: Several of the readers commenting on the article pegged it – which I only discovered after I had pegged it me ownself. Therefore, I can continue to feel smug about such a stupid error. Gawd.

On the Where the Walls are Soft news front, now… The Waitress, the Whiskey & the Handcuffs: Parts I to IV have been republished in their original date slots. If you haven’t read them, or want to refresh, Part I is HERE.

I’m classed as legally blind but I still have some vision 😉

Les Says: Yeah, but after “peeking out” her window and seeing a familiar sight, we’re informed later that she can only see light and shadows and must feel her way around the house…?

wahahaaaa how does a blind woman peek out and see a familiar scene??
