This image was on the space.com site, advertising for the New York Times. I thought someone here had bought ad space for me! :D

(Yes, the image is hotlinked, but I also kept the link to the NYT to compensate).

Should be for the Weekly world News.

But then too--that is about right for the old times.

Did you miss the irony?

A similar ad for the Weekly World News would be:

The moon landing happened.
There was never life on Mars.
The Raleians never cloned a baby.

Who can you trust?

Here's the complete editorial. (http://it.is.rice.edu/~rickr/goddard.editorial.html)

Can we all say pompous and patronizing, boys and girls?

Back during the news story about CBS, Rather, and the fake documents, Fox and MSNBC said that the TV news networks and the major news magazines and newspapers now have small staffs that patrol the internet looking for hot stories on individual blogs and websites. This means that your website is most likely being monitored by some of the network people and major newspaper and magazine researchers. So, it is quite possible that whoever designed that NYT ad got that headline idea from studying this website and maybe your book too.
