Hackensack Discussion / Re: My favorite paper is not having a good day

There's a real doozy in today's sports section.

Below is most of the front page. The problem resides with the "Culture Shift" article. In it, as the subhed mentions, new-ish defensive alignments - specifically The Shift, where entire infields are shifted to one side, based on a batter's tendencies - are discussed. As is common with front-page stories, the article is continued on another page.

A minor point to bring up is that you're usually told to find that continuation under a title that's related to the subject. Something with the word "shift" in it would be appropriate in this case. However, this one tells you to look for "ALL STAR GAME".................but that's not the problem.

It also tells you that the continuation is on Page 1S, which happens to be....................THE FRONT PAGE!

OK - so maybe it's on another page in the section. Guess again. The rest of the article doesn't exist.

By the way, that's not all the errors. If you look where it says "Tuesday's Game", it states that the game is on at 7pm on Fox. Every other listing in the entire paper correctly says that it's 8pm.

But DO tune in at 7pm for Page Six TV.

True, but it'll probably make you want to eat 4 or 5 more than you intended.

A joint is probably healthier than one of their cheeseburgers.

That's the message, but it's hardly logical.

The logic is:  'Parents, take your kids to this hamburger joint. That's the joint they need, not a marijuana joint.'

I found this in a pile of papers that were mostly from the late 1990s. I don't recall ever seeing it before and I don't quite get its "logic".

This is a better version of the first shot shown in the post showing Hackensack's 4th of July 2018 fireworks (http://www.hackensacknow.org/index.php/topic,3743) because the 389 Main hole in the ground has been brightened to show its illumination by the fireworks. And I'll probably post it again next year to show the huge difference with the 5-story building that goes in that hole.

Once again - lay off the sports department. Only 8 of these 11 gems belong to them:

During basketball season, "raining threes" is a good thing when your team is doing it. At The Record, it rains fives EVERY season - more like a 12-month downpour - which is NOT a good thing. And lest you think that this lazy and unimaginative shortcut to article-writing is solely the domain of the sports section, I'm here to tell you that only 16 of the following 19 recent examples originated there, so take that, naysayers!

The first two non-sports offerings should have been only one, but someone thought no one would notice if they rearranged a word or two and ran the same story on two consecutive days. Talk about lazy!

Chure, man. Here's some more:

1. They finally put a banner on the fence at Main and Ward to show what's coming.

2. Looking north

3. Looking south

4. Spray and shoot
