Scary dumb

Here, thanks to Editor & Publisher, is a glimpse of what the Chicago Tribune might look like once it's redesigned. My guess is that whoever leaked this page-one prototype was hoping to head off disaster, and I pray he or she succeeds. Like everyone else, I make breezy allusions to the Trib. But when you get down to it, it's not the Trib I read and it's not the Trib I respect. It's a grown-up paper that calls itself the Tribune.

This front page is pathetic. You know those old guys who let what's left of their hair grow long and pull it into a ponytail, thinking that'll make it easier to score? That's how it's pathetic.
