    Re placeholder heds: At the small daily where I worked until last year, there was a legendary story about our sports desk guy waiting for the Lakers game to end and the story to move, and he put as the hed "Laker hed goes here doofus-breath." You can guess the end of that story: He quickly flows in the story right before deadline and forgets to change the hed. It went out in the print edition like that.

    Yeah, me too. The page was in a desk drawer in the sports department, and one of the guys showed it to me, but I didn't think to snap a pic with my phone.
