Dateline: Thu 30 Jun 2011

 A reader of this blog -- an alert reader -- points out that the Indianapolis Star ran the same letter to the editor two days in a row.

On Tuesday, Jack Robertson of Carmel expressed his negative view of the slow repair work being done on both the Keystone Avenue collapsed bridge and road repairs on the Westside.

On Wednesday, Robertson's view again led the "conversations" page in the Star, and this time it was accompanied by a photo.

Given limited rescources and not enough copy editors, one wonders if these sorts of mistakes will become commonplace.

Take one glass of water, swallow slowly....or try a teaspoon of sugar....or hire back some good people.

I found it interesting that today's Star had a news style obit for Landrum Shields(as opposed to the paid obit)however the layout was botched w/ Rev Shield's photo laid over the text.

I saw an obit headline misspelled today--the last name was Thomas, I think...and it was a paid obit. By mid-afternoon, they'd corrected it.

If you can't get a paid obit correct, it's pretty sad.

And the Shields obit was out-hustled by 48 hours by Amos Brown at 1430AM.

Forty-eight hours. Pathetic.

One of this city's most-dynamic clergymen in 50 years, and he's dead two and a half days before The Star notices.

No kidding!
I must say -- my copy of the Star did not have the photo/overlay problems.
But you go Amos Brown!
