Another shot

Did anyone but me notice this?

The front page, top-of-the fold banner headline of the Charleston, South Carolina, newspaper today was about the nine people murdered in a local church. Quite proper.

But.....

Affixed to the masthead directly above that headline, was a blue sticker advertisement now commonly used by newspapers everywhere. A sponsor buys it - you read it - you pull if off without damaging the newsprint.

This morning's sticker ad - above that headline - was for a local shooting range. SHOOTING RANGE!!!

Now, the paper was first printed with the headline of the murders. THEN the sticker was attached by a circulation worker. Whoever did that had to know what the headline said.

That person - the one who applied the stickers by hand or machine - is my nominee for the dumbest ass in the world. Not for today. But for the rest of the year.
