The Union flubs another Page One feature on its “beloved” cartoonist

Around the last time The Union featured its “beloved” cartoonist R.L. Crabb on Page One, the editors botched the headline: “It takes a Grand Marshall (sic)”

And now its happened again this weekend: ‘Nevada County cartoonist featured in “Who Kllled (sic) Hunter S. Thompson?'”

How’s this poor fellow supposed to post The Union’s articles about him on his refrigerator with such glaring errors? LOL

  1. Well I guess they read this blog. It’s fixed, at least online. (We don’t subscribe to The Union print edition, but get the Bee and NY Times in print via The Union. Thanks for that.)

  2. George Boardman has now become a p.r. flack for R.L. Crabb. “I was mentioned in a book, I was mentioned in a book”! I always thought that was the career that suited George best.
