Wallace Matthews contributes some cage-liner for the bird-owners among us. The article is practically unreadable, but the comments on the article make the whole thing worthwhile. Some highlights:

This is one of the worst articles I have ever read. Actually its not even an article its an editorial by a dim witted slob. [...] This guy is an embarrassment to sports journalism --Ivan Katchadikov
hi i'm wallace matthews and i continue to prove that i just don't get it. newsday, fire this hack --andrew

It goes on like that. Nothing warms my heart like regular folks calling out journalistic ineptitude.
