WTFCA

The Commercial Appeal hit a bit of a rough patch last week. The digital edition continues to display strangely cropped photographs. Some are more unfortunate than others.

Guess that machete cut half his face clean off. As if the new digital formatting errors weren't weird enough, check out the Photoshop job on this picture used to illustrate a story that was kind of about window ordinances but mostly about how Otherlands has big awesome windows that you can look into and out of and see things like customers gazing into their laptops or pedestrians designed by M.C. Escher.

It gets worse. Apparently, someone working on the story accidentally cut and pasted his or her own Facebook status into the body of the story. So the article segues roughly from thoughtful commentary on businesses with window coverings that violate local ordinances to a deeply personal story about how a young journalist turned down his/her first post-college job offer until his/her mama intervened. "You ARE NOT gonna be around here and not do anything," Mama was quoted as saying.
