Proto-World in the Press! (Again)

Wow, with the Weekly World News abandoning the newsstand and going to on-line only, I was starting to fear we might suffer a reduction in the truly insane coverage of language issues in the print media. But this is America, and you know that somebody will step up. Today, it was USA Today, with an article picked up from the Christian Science Monitor (here) called:

I thought the whole Proto-World thing had returned to dark corners. Details will follow, time permitting, tomorrow.
