The report of my resurrection is greatly exaggerated

News item lead-in, as read by WHYY’s Brenda Jorett this morning:

The demise of Wireless Philadelphia is expected to be resurrected today.

They’re resurrecting its demise? Is this some sort of existential joke?


  1. The universe is some sort of existential joke.

  2. Clearly they need a more competent editor. What she means is that its demise will be raised from the dead, not resurrected.
