Uge the Times to Hire More Copyeditors


On Friday a front-page headline in The New York Times (D.C. edition) announced, "Warning Uged on Stimulants Like Ritalin." Today the lead story, by Robert McFadden, says the weekend's blizzard came "after two months of humbug winter." While it's possible that McFadden thinks the season is some sort of con job, it's more likely that he meant humdrum, as an adjacent caption describes it, or possibly ho-hum. Ritalin may be overused elsewhere, but it seems they could use a little more of it the Times newsroom.
