NYT Oops

I just had to post this.

Kerrie and I used to get a good chuckle (and, more often than not, an exasperated sigh) from finding typos and gaffes in the Argus Leader, our local newspaper. In their defense, cutbacks throughout the industry probably led them to cut an editor or proofer or something. Regardless, it was like a word puzzle each day – find the typos (and there always were – I mean, lots of them, in obvious spots.)

So when a paper like the New York Times screws up, you know I’m on it.

“don’t use this as a hp photo — it was used last night with BAILOUT! (but FINANCES wasn’t used last night, so a different biden pic would work.)”

Just a peek behind the scenes at the NYT. Don’t use this picture. It was used last night. Oops.

Carry on. I’m just using this as an excuse to post. Because, you know, it’s not like I’ve ever done something this stupid. Oh. Wait.
