How's That Again?

Reading the local newspaper is a daily source of comedy. For this paper, like so many others, the concept of proof-reading before publishing is totally alien.

Great story today about an advocacy group that wants elected officials to enact legislation to prevent employers from asking questions about the criminal history of job applicants.

This group describes itself as an advocacy group for "formerly incarnated persons."

I can certainly see why an employer would not want to hire anyone who had been "incarnated" as that term means "embodied in flesh, especially in human form," such as a fiend incarnate.

Now, if the advocacy group is concerned with persons who have been previously "incarcerated" then that's a different story.
