The AP is wrong
Today I was reading The PO newspaper and I found an article that had to do with Kony. The reason that this article caught my attention is because I am a very avid supporter of Kony 2012. The article was talking about, in Minneapolis, Minnesota the police are trying to find the vandals who spray-painted the solo word "Kony" on to the "Spoonbridge and Cherry" sculpture in the Minneapolis Sculpture Gardens. The error that I found in this story is not a minor error, it is more of an error that could have been fixed and even avoided if they would have taken the time to research. They had mentioned that there was no reason for the word to be written on the spoon, when in fact there was a perfectly solid reason for it to be done. The thing that made me think about why it was written on the spoon is because of "Cover the Night", on April 20th. Invisible Children's "Cover the Night" event, part of the organization's controversial "Kony 2012" campaign to bring attention to the crimes of Joseph Kony, continued as planned Friday night, albeit much smaller than originally thought.
