    Dummy text hedline would have been better than what happened.

    See above. An editor wrote the headline. Another editor saw it and basically signed off on it.

    Those of us still left are working with no net. Made even worse by coronavirus.

    It’s still hard to imagine that being written in the first place.

    Man, I read the headline again: "Buildings matter, too." Unless it was one of those "joke headlines" made that somehow got in the paper, it's hard to believe two editors would be that stupid. Everybody knows "All lives matter" is getting people fired when they say it. Buildings Matter Too is so egregious it's beyond belief. You've got to fire both of them.

    Not surprising if the paper is understaffed and overworked. Something like this can easily be missed.

    I don’t think he was the enemy. But I’m on the wrong side of a lot of popular opinions.

    Great call. Although as a suit he was making easy money. But he'll be happier raking it in at some university as well.
    Anybody that messes with the saying Black Lives Matter is done. Case closed. All lives matter is a huge no no. And Buildings Matter Too ... you saw what happened there.

    True, and the optics are awful. But, in a couple of months, that fiasco will blow over, and he'll be fine.
