We have a winner!

MONTHS AGO, I PROMISED to send pdf copies of my two books to the 100th follower on Twitter. It has taken a while, but I now have 100 followers…and Kyle Stephens at The Times-Leader in Grifton, NC has the books. Good for Kyle. Good for me. Good for this blog!

Go figure…with thanks to Doug Fisher

SO…HOW DO YOU DO A TEXT WRAP that’s so bad it makes your teeth hurt? Thanks to my colleague Doug Fisher, here’s a look at one example. This comes from The State, in Columbia, SC.

A widow…really      bad      word      spacing…well, not something I’d wanna put in my portfolio.

I begin to despair that page assembly people (no designer did this!) will ever get the idea that really      bad      word      spacing    makes    the     newspaper     look      sloppy.

Does anyone out there want to try to defend this?
