There was a short piece in yesterday's Post about high fructose corn syrup. The headline, set in big fat bold type, was "Sweeter than suger." Unless the bad deli mushroom soup was hobbling my reading comprehension, there was no reference in the story to a scientist/activist named Suger (and I think even the Post would have capped it then). "Sweeter than suger." I know The Post is not Bananafish or the New Left Review. I expect the boosterism. ("Will the Dems match Bush's new civility?" or something like it.) But sugar is a word the average Post writer must see at least once a day, on a soda can, or a soup ramikin.

Did anyone else see this headline?
