Yesterday… sung next week

Working on a secret print project, Ken Layne is reminded that the jig is up for print…: “I’ve taken to singing a variation of “Yesterday” when reading the L.A. Times: ‘Yesterday, all these stories were already played, now they seem so old and oh so lame, oh I read this crap yesterday.’ Try working on a weekly. Jesus, what’s the point? Well, the point is to Add Value, the way The Economist or Weekly Standard or NYT Week in Review adds value: get a bunch of good writers and let them make sense of it all. Even then, it’s too late. Today’s Week in Review missed some pretty obvious stuff, because the articles were finished on Wednesday or Thursday and edited early Friday.”
