Who Reads the Olympian? Not Their Headline Writers.

Our local paper, The Olympian, has been a colony of the Tacoma paper for some years. As the staff have been reduced and their focus has shifted from Olympia to "south sound," their attention to detail has also reduced. They've been dialing it in for some time, but today I now know they don't even read the stories they copy onto their print edition.

This story is about a town near Portland, Oregon, called Albany, but the headline writer was sure we were talking about New York.
