Be careful with your clever ironic leads

From a CanWest News Service story last week:

Prince Edward Island’s West Point Lighthouse is an icon. But now that icon is in danger of being claimed by the very element it guards against.

Water has eroded the dunes near the lighthouse so badly that there are concerns the building might collapse into the ocean.

So lighthouses guard against … water? That’s odd, I could have sworn that lighthouses were invented to warn ships about land. You’d think they’d already be well aware of the water surrounding them.
