Editorial nonsense, part 3

Ah, how did we miss this?

But Andrew, scintillating as your essay on editorials is, when you say, "The Times-Standard editorial page has improved under Rich Somerville," you destroy any credibility you might've had.

"...hard-hitting and direct... blunt and often scathing" -- uh, yeah, right.
Like these gems?
"Roast
To all those involved in the recent high-speed chase from Arcata to Crescent City, putting others at risk. Luckily, no one was injured.
Toast
To all the firefighters putting their lives on the line to save others and their property. Thank you."

Wow. Condemning criminals and praising firefighters? That's taking a risk, for sure!
What's next? Strong words against child molesters? Kudos for the Food Bank? We're aglow with anticipation.
Oh, and this? A direct rip-off of this.

"Condemning criminals...".

Except the editorial wrote, "to all those involved...".

I would assume that means the cops as well as those being chased?
