in the news: Greek accents (no, really!)

I don't find issues concerning ancient Greek in the news very often, and certainly issues concerning accents (and breathing marks; really, diacritics in general) are even rarer in America's news organs. So it provided a pleasant start to my day to find a piece entitled, "All Greek: St John's T-Shirt Dismays Expert" in last Thursday's Santa Fe Reporter. This is a bit like all those misspelled Greek (and otherwise foreign) tattoos, though perhaps a little less permanent.
