Sign of the times

    The local metro paper had a story on the front page that jumped to page 4. The story on the front was about four inches. The first graph on the front page was in smaller type than the remainder on the story on the front. The jump page had a color graphic to go along with the story. I have no way of knowing for sure, but it wouldn't surprise me that a change had to be made at the top of the story but the jump page already may have cleared since it was a color page. Thus, the smaller type to the first graph in order not to affect the jump page. Again, I have no way of knowing for sure, but with all of these regional hubs, I'm sure we will see a lot more of this, and a lot worse, in the future.

    That's not a sign of the times. The story clearly was edited or proofed at some point.

    Yeah more a sign of the stupidity of the platemaking process, the same one that's been around basically since color was used in a newspaper.

    I expected something more depressing. Coming straight from the Oklahoman thread, was almost a pick-me-up, like "Those crazy, lovable newspapers!"
