My friend Roger (who is not a blogger of any sort) posted me this picture, found by his son, and showing the perils of letting advertising algorithms decide what you're going to show on your site. Posted with his permission:

The site appears to be wn.com - with wn standing for world news.

And that says quite a lot about the viability of Livejournal these days, if a post with four comments is in the top 25...

Reminds me of a book of misprints and the like from US papers I bought in New York many years ago. A couple were cases of the headline writer not checking beyond the first line of the accompanying story.

So

Man found dead in well

started, "The body of a man has been found in a well-kept condition".

and

Polish singer wins Nobel prize

began "Polish-born writer Isaac Bashevis Singer has won the Nobel prize for literature."
