Before people start going off on the WP and shaking their angry fists,
notice that it's an AP article.

Essentially someone at the Associated Press writes it, various papers
subscribe to it and just pull material and publish it as filler.

Yes, the WP?should probably fact check the articles they pull, but
like most major newspapers, they don't have the time. It's a minor
human interest story that probably made page 12 of section B of the
newspaper or something.
