Ed­i­tor’s Note: Egg on our face

The Star Democrat - - OPINION -

And not just an egg or two, but a whole 18-pack.

In Wed­nes­day’s edi­tion, The Star Demo­crat er­ro­neously printed the Thurs­day comics and puz­zles.

The wrong file was grabbed when the page was de­signed, and the mis­take was not caught in the proof­read­ing process.

To rec­tify that mis­take, the comics and puz­zles page for Thurs­day’s edi­tion was per­son­ally changed by this ed­i­tor to in­clude the miss­ing Wed­nes­day comics and puz­zles. I even had a no­tice put on the front page to that ef­fect.

Much to my dis­may, Thurs­day’s edi­tion con­tained a re­peat of the Thurs­day comics and puz­zles that al­ready had ap­peared in the Wed­nes­day edi­tion.

As best I can puz­zle out, my changes to the Thurs­day comics page did not save in our com­puter sys­tem and the ver­sion of the page that was not cor­rected was printed.

Those Wed­nes­day comics and puz­zles are now be­ing printed on page B4 of to­day’s edi­tion, along­side the usual Fri­day comics, which are on B5.

We apol­o­gize for the feel­ing of deja vu and the in­con­ve­nience to all those who en­joy the daily comics and puz­zles. JOHN GRIEP
