Saw the above headline and was concerned that Billy Corgan (a Highland Park resident) and his band were arrested. Glad to see the Smashingt Pumpkins are staying out of trouble.

Look at the story under the DUI headline. The suspect's name changes from Siegel to Bielby in mid-paragraph. What's up with that? Journalistic short term memory loss in the middle of writing the story? C'mon, Patch, how about a little quality control.
