That ubiquitous local man

While we're skewering ourselves, I'll point out this take on "local man" in headlines.
Local Man is famous. He doesn't have a publicist, but he gets more ink than Madonna or Michael Jackson. In some newspapers, Local Man appears in more headlines than the president of the United States.
Check out the story in the Washington Post.

I prefer The Onion's "area man." Sounds like a superhero.

Yes, and any mention of "area man" was conspicuously absent from that story ...
