INTELLIGENCE FAILURES

This just in from our "If we haven't snarked, it isn't news" department. A week ago, The Commercial Appeal's executive editor Chris Peck answered in print a question the Pesky Fly has been asking for some time now: If the CA is so new and so improved, then why are there so many big, obvious mistakes? According to Peck, the daily paper's new computer system has caused some problems that have been exacerbated by the comprehensive redesign and possibly by insufficient staff training. Layoffs at the CA suggest that the company is trying to work with lighter, more mobile troop deployments, while a recent employee walkout indicates that morale isn't as high as it could be. There is some good news to come from this, though it has gone largely unreported in the liberal media: The CA isn't invading Iraq any time in the next year.
