Journalists play word of the day

We started the game Sunday when our teaser bar had two references to fire, so we made it a fire theme. Oh, so much fun. Here it is:

We continued this word of the day with “ice” tonight. We managed to use it in a headline:


Too bad us at copy desk did not think of doing this earlier in the semester since we only have three issues left now. Stuff likes this makes me love journalism. Tomorrow’s word is fresh.
