Thanks to reader R.L., an entry that combines sporting and religio-legal themes:
Previously in the found-art series here, here, and here.
Sometimes these juxtapositions are genuinely innocent; others have a "who, me?" faux innocence, like the second and third items linked above. My guess is that this latest one results from actual inadvertent innocence. The sports editor handling the story about Desmond Bishop of Wisconsin's own Super Bowl-bound Packers may not have thought about the eponymous resonance with other stories in the news. Either way, a nice addition to the genre. Thanks, Journal-Sentinel editors; thanks, alert readers. (Coming out of hiding to post this, as I may do every few days, since the item wouldn't last until April.)
We want to hear what you think about this article. Submit a letter to the editor or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
