If you think ‘recent’ means ‘9 months ago’

I guess to the writer on the Yahoo! front page, someone who lost his job last year (that’s at least nine months ago), just lost it. I mean, just lost his job — not just lost his temper, which he apparently did:

To the rest of the world, this would be a stupid mistake, made by someone unable to read and/or write. But I quibble.

Of lesser importance is another example of the inability of the writers and editors at yahoo.com to make a simple decision: How do you spell co-worker? Or is it coworker?

Maybe we can all chip in and buy Yahoo! writers and editors some style guides. Then we’d have to find someone to teach the staffers how to use them.
