Hex on Hax

Dateline: Fri 10 Apr 2009

The Star's feature desk has repeated the popular (with me) Carolyn Hax column today -- I again got to read about the woman impatient with the boyfriend, etc. The column is the exact same one that ran last week. Ho hum.

At least they got Billy Graham right, I think. Looks like a resurrection message from that tired old chestnut.

Not blaming anyone. Features has been dumbed down/skeletonized to within an inch of its life. When we refer to "sleepytime editors" making mistakes -- an old New York Times line -- it probably is more true than not at the Star. Copy editors may well be working such long hours, with no overtime, that they don't get enough rest to do the job.
