The Heat's Affecting the Times


In my line of work I've been trained to think that I'm only a typo away from getting fired; so when my fav newspaper makes a typo or some other clerical error, it impacts me the way being attacked by a chainsaw wiedling maniac on the subway would.

So check out two standouts from today's Times: If you log on to the paper's homepage you'll see that the paper's effusive review of Jose Rivera's play "Cloud Techtonics" is posted twice, on the front page. That's a PR person's wet dream but surely someone is getting chewed out as I write this.

The next "error" is just a salty headline that would make some of my more conservative/dirty minded clients cringe. Is Korea's taste of summer REALLLLY a long, cold slurp? Hot!

Slow news day (aka I am slammed at the office) hence the inane post.

chainsaw wiedling?

I enjoy your writing and observations. I offer this feedback with the belief you'd rather know than not, like when there's a bit of broccoli in your teeth, or your fly is open.

Thanks for the feedback. And yes, you're absolutely right, I appreciate feedback and constructive, hell even catty, criticism :-)
