Hilarious copy edit of the day

From a NYT story on the recent prominence of baseball in D.C. politics:

And finally, on Monday, there was the nomination of Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr., a Philadelphia Phillies fan (short for "fanatic") who told the world that his ambition as a young man had been to become baseball commissioner.

Snort. "Short for 'fanatic." No kidding. Who's copy-editing this paper, C. Montgomery Burns?

Mr. Burns: I feel like such a free spirit, and I'm really enjoying this so-called...iced cream.
