You simply have no idea of the hazards of journalism.

The city desk got a call from a woman on East 6th Street who proudly announced that she had become a great-grandmother at 48.

This was indeed unusual and worthy of words, a picture and perhaps a subsequent appearance on TV, which was probably what great-grandma had in mind.

Unfortunately, a checkup of the facts disclosed that the new great-grandchild's mother, 15, hadn't quite received a proposal of marriage from the father.
