We Won't Dispute the Accuracy of This

That said, we think the word they wanted was "collision."

Thanks to Greg Pincus for the screen shot from the AOL home page.

We're sure this has brought a post-mortem giggle to the cryogenically frozen remains of Dr. Freud hidden somewhere in our nation's capital*. (Has anyone thought to look for them in Joe Biden's liquor cabinet?)

* We originally had this as "capitol," which with a capital C refers to the Capitol building, but with the "a" properly refers to the capital city.

collusion: A secret agreement between two or more parties for a fraudulent, illegal, or deceitful purpose.

Oh, I agree! But my guess is that car collusions take a backseat to elevator, office, and tapas-bar collusions.

The headline also compares human beings to cities. As written, the citizens have more collusions than the cities.

Or, more likely to have a collusion than a city ... either way you read it, it's wrong.
