2011-2012 school year: word of mouth

A couple of things:

1. I’m sorry for overusing the word “always” in this comic. It happened. I saw it. I didn’t fix it. My apologies.

2. Our discussion of “word of mouth” was made unexpectedly interesting this past week with the passing of former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno. His death was falsely reported on Twitter and spread like wildfire on this Saturday past. Paterno’s family made public statements that Paterno was still fighting. He did  succumb to lung cancer on Sunday, but it was an interesting lesson on the nature of news reporting on social networking services.
