This is an untouched photo of today’s paper (March 15, 2016)
I could have believed they used an old front page, if it were April 1st today, but no; it is Tuesday March 15th. And I know it is the old paper because we recognize the stories and especially the cartoons. Some news might have been the same today – some things never change – but the cartoons do.
So what happened? How did this occur? My PA tried to phone the Journal office; they have a special number to call if you didn’t get your paper, and they’ll deliver it (again?) before long.
But he couldn’t get through. I suspect because everyone else was phoning in this odd problem.
We had to leave, but I dashed off a note with the photo above to a friend on the Journal staff, and he sent it on to the customer service department. When I get home I’ll hope for an explanation.
And a copy of the paper dated March 15, 2016. The Ides of March.
