A reader's nightmare

October 31, 2002

Egad! What chaos hast thou wrought!

Where to begin?

"Three Day Forecast." You seem to be fascinated with large headlines. But when it comes to finding out what the event actually is and where one could find it, the print is so small it would take a magnifying glass to read.

That comment holds for most of the edition. Most of the page is taken up with the huge headline or pictures, or both.

What happened to Radio Highlights? There are still a few of us who listen to the radio as well as TV and it's nice to know if there is something special on.

Your daytime TV listings may start at 1:00 p.m., but most of us are awake a lot earlier than that and would like to know what's on TV in the morning.

My one piece of advice: Don't get caught up in making the paper a graphic designer's dream come true lest you wind up with a reader's nightmare!
