Great Security at the French Children’s Hospital
Dateline Paris, France …
Lets just start by saying I believe the Necker hospital may want to invest in some better security measures in the future. A cook at a Paris children’s hospital was killed in a sword attack Saturday evening by a man he met on the Internet.
“He stabbed him. The security team and one of his colleagues tried to intervene, but were unable to do anything,” Isabelle Lesage, director of the hospital, told Reuters.
The attack was carried out with a short Japanese sword, known as a “katana,” a police source said.
Short Japanese sword, known as a “katana“? SHORT??? Please define the definition of short, please.

I’ll bet the reporter got it right but the editor thought, “Japanese sword? The Japanese word for sword is katana, not wakizashi! Jeez, what are kids learning in J-school these days, anyway?”
I sure hope so.
