Dear Patch, Please stop using 'hospitalized' as a description for 'treated at a hospital and sent home.' The generally accepted definition is kept in the hospital. Your headlines are misleading and sensationalized when you use it this way.

Katie, totally agree with you. Anyone calling themselves a journalist or an editor should strive for accuracy in reporting and should not use misleading terms to sensationalize an article.

You two have entirely too much time on your hands.
