Tight Times at the CA: Enjoy these typos while you can

Posted By on Tue, Oct 29, 2013 at 5:23 PM

When it was announced that my colleague Chris Herrington was leaving his post as the Flyer's film/music/Grizzlies guy to become the Commercial Appeal's entertainment editor I'll admit to having some mixed emotions. I was proud of Chris, obviously, but also concerned for my own job since Herrington's renowned competence might result in fewer opportunities to take pot shots at the daily.

After reading this inarguable but no less cringe-inducing headline I'm almost sad that CA didn't poach a couple of our copy editors while they were at it.

Truer words were never spoken.

Tight is tight in almost every case but as Booker T. Jones will tell you (and Herrington's online column seems to confirm), it's all in the timing.
