So what have we learned? Pamela Sitt is a perfectly adequate reporter, even if you couldn't pay me to read her column.
Not a single exclafuckingmation point.
But don't overlook that lovely "had gotten" in the lead. Ugh.
Where was Tom Skerritt?
It's a basic local crime story, and it works for me.
Is this what you do all day? Read the real papers, looking for something, anything to complain about?
5: It works for me too. All complaining has come from commenters.
Sitt is an alumnus of Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism -- students there learn that kind of standard crime reporting in their sleep.
