How's this for solid copy editing?

"The emergency room at Regions Hospital alone was treated more than 100 people."

How does that make it into the paper?

What ever happened to personal responsibility? You traveled in an ice storm in Minnesota in November. Watch the news, listen to the radio, ever hear of these things?
You make public safety personnel risk their lifes to get you up a ramp? Come on lady.
Next time, well lets just hope there is no next time.

These women had listened to the weather report. Freezing rain was not forecast until 3 am. The weather stations admitted to miscalculating the weather threat. MnDot apologized for dropping the ball on de-icing---they,too, were caught off guard.
Don't be so sanctimonious. I say kudos to the women for getting out that night to enjoy a night of cards with dear friends. Who were you spending your Saturday night with? Yourself?
