What’s wrong with this picture?

A copy-editor must have lost their job, or at least their dignity, over this blooper. We’ve had a few mistakes like this over the years at the Voice, but then again, our circulation of 8,000 invites a little less scrutiny than the million-plus print subscribers of the Times. Luckily for the Times, the error was caught before the New York edition was printed. Still, a mistake like this has got to make people not living at the center of the universe wonder if buying a subscription is even worth it these days.
