This tidbit arrived yesterday from reader Brian Kennelly:
Matt Lauer was doing a piece on Scott Peterson. At one point he said,"Scott Peterson has been convicted of killing two pe..., er, uh, of killing his pregnant wife..."
Apparently, he could not bring himself to say "of killing two people," even though, objectively, that was the finding of the court. He might have had to admit that an unborn child is a person.
