Hat trick of evil

Looks like Santa Cliche came early for the folks downtown. Packed into a mere two inches across the bottom of the front, we have:

An "it's official" (garnished with "butts out")

An "it's not easy being green"

And a double dose of Christmas song titles!

When you wring the institutional memory out of your newsroom, you're not just losing the people who remember whether two streets cross where the story says they do. You're also losing the people whose job is to gently remind reporters (and editors) that "It's not easy being green" and the like weren't original the last five dozen times we saw them.
