Speaking of math and reading skills, I direct your attention to the yesterday's (Jan 30) edition of amNew York(sic).

On page 24, an in-house promo ad says advertisers can count on amNew York's 1,019,326 readers.

Some 14 pages later, another in-house promo touts the magazine's 908,300 readers.

Editors on holiday, or pasties are grabbing promos out of a box to fill odd holes on pages.

I'd be surprised if they're still pasting up. but honestly, how often, as a copy editor do you read ads? And if we're going to read and edit them do we limit it to house ads? How do those fixes get made at 10 p.m. anyway? Do readers differentiate between ads and editorial content? Not that I don't get what you're saying, just some related questions.

Kudos to Nicole for a sharp new blog, by the way. It's for designers, but since she's been such a good advocate for rimrat interests on the design side, I hope some of us can return the favor.
