"Public hearing set on regulations to ban wind in parts of county"

Could I be arrested in a no-fart zone?

We have that regulation at my house already. I’ve been fined several times for violating it.

I think it was a spelling error. They don't want to ban wind, they want to bend wind. That is much better than breaking wind.

It's a linguistic artifice called "metonymy," like referring to your car as your "wheels."

Part for the whole.

Two local examples of the need for decent editing from today's news:

My father died at age two[i][/i] (Town mayoral candidate referring to herself)

By the time the police arrived they were both dead[I] [/I] (homeowner shot two intruders who both died before the police arrived)
