Star Tribune places pressure cooker ad below story about Boston bombs [IMAGE]
Today's Star Tribune features a pressure cooker ad directly below a story about the Boston bombings, which killed three people and maimed many more thanks to what was likely a "pressure cooker packed with metal."
Perhaps Strib copy editors/layout workers should be cut some slack this time. After all, they had a couple of things to celebrate last night that might've distracted them from their work: two Pulitzer Prizes and brand new contracts for staffers that include raises and improved health insurance and bereavement leave benefits.
Still, that's an ad that should've ran alongside a different story. Maybe one about Michele Bachmann? After all, she's squarely in the pressure cooker these days.
