Not a headline, but …

Long ago, while working for a vendor providing on-site support for the New York State Police, I encountered a memorable sentence in the "Interesting Cases" section of The Trooper magazine. The article was about some problems encountered during the investigation into an untimely death.

The cause of the difficulty? "The deceased, a Haitian, spoke only Croatian."

That sentence was perfectly poetic in terms of meter and rhyme, which is part of the reason I can quote it verbatim after all these years. More than that, though, is the beautiful fallacy of its logic. For one thing, it is extremely unlikely that a Haitian would speak Croatian. Besides that, "the deceased" could hardly be expected to speak at all.

Presumably the investigator had asked about the unfamiliar language being spoken. He had never heard of "Créole Haitien", and he didn't know how to spell it. He couldn't really pronounce it either, so when he tried to explain it to the editor of the magazine it came out as "Croatian".

Or close enough!
