Eponymous Mayor Lantigua


For John, BLUFIf it can be read wrong, it will be read wrong.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



Headlines lose something when they go from the printed page to the world wide web.  For instance, here is one from the Metro Section of The Boston Globe:
"Jury convicts ex-aide of Lantigua"
I took this to indicate that The Globe had invented, or at least adopted, a new word for corruption, honoring the former Mayor of Lawrence, Mr William Lantigua.  Nice appellation.  Nice nod to the former Mayor, who rumor has it is somewhat corrupt.

Going to the Globe web page, the same article by Reporter Scott Allen, we find this headline:

"Ex-aide to William Lantigua convicted of corruption"
While the web version is more descriptive, I still like the print version.  And not just because it is 1 April.

I never heard of the word "Eponymous" until yesterday, and now today I see it again.
