Weiner says health has declined from brain tumor, baseball union will appoint deputy

Speaking Tuesday to the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, Weiner said a No. 2 will be appointed “within a week or two.”

Does it make me a bad person to use an article about a guy's brain tumor just to illustrate bad copy editing to my students (i.e., "gravely")?

I worry that the Selig offensive goes beyond his own rehabilitation and into pushing the union when they appear weak.
