The Ending That Wasn't


The last paragraph of Tasneem Paghdiwala's Our Town story "Ribbed Collar Crime" was inadvertently omitted from our June 8 print edition. Here's the missing paragraph:

"Most commenters sided with Threadless; they labeled the designer a 'thief' and a 'disgrace,' and then the discussion quickly devolved into a geeky parade of sarcastic comments: 'This shirt is racist,' someone wrote. 'This shirt was responsible for the Defenestration of Prague,' went another. 'This shirt stole my bike' and 'This shirt was on the grassy knoll' soon followed. T-shirt hobbyists apparently have better things to do on the Internet than discuss intellectual property law all day."
