Hot, Wild, XXX Political Action...

The high jinks continue at my old newspaper, the Florida Times-Union in Jacksonville. This comes from a column written Sunday by their reader advocate:

While Times-Union reporters fanned out to polling places last Tuesday, the most interesting flub of Election Day happened on the newspaper's own front page.
A toll-free number to a non-partisan organization tracking the election turned out to be painfully wrong. Instead, the wrong number referred callers to a sex talk service. Of course, this never should have happened, since the newsroom's policy is that all phone numbers should be called before publication.


Anyone who knows Jacksonville - perhaps the most conservative, religious city in Florida - will have a true appreciation for the beauty.
