Just when you thought the LA Times didn't have another foot to shoot itself in, it miraculously finds one.
I was working at home this morning when I hear a bellow from the living room: "The @#$% LA Times has found another way to shrink the comics!" (You gotta understand, the comics page is the first thing either one of us reads, and it's probably the only reason we still get the paper.) Sure enough, there's a giant banner ad in the middle of the funnies.
You know, I'm happy (okay, well, grudgingly willing) to be part of the hospice staff for the slow demise of the LA Times, but as you'll see in the picture, this wasn't even a paid ad. What the motherfucking hell is up with that?!? Go ahead and destroy my reading experience in the name of increased ad revenues, but shrinking the funnies for sheer (and pointless) self-promotion is just a thumb in the eye.
Dear LA Times: This is my fist, and I'm shakin' it at you!
