Today's LA Times cover: inspired juxtaposition?

La Times-1

Richard Metzger sent this around today, saying: "Is this what the bailout really looks like???"


  1. “LA Times,” please, not “LA Time’s.”

    I think “LA” is OK though (rather than “L.A.”).

  2. @Johnny Cat: OMG, it DOES look like ID4! I love that movie.
    Although I think we’re doing a fine job of stripping our planet of resources without the help of aliens. :(

  3. i saw this with my wife this afternoon and drew the same conclusion initially. horrible (or intentional?) heading/body formatting.

  4. That’s a pretty epic front page. But its not like the LATimes is making this stuff up. It is actually going down like this. Economic and environmental catastrophe.

    Did anyone notice the charity that Bill Clinton and George Bush Sr. were doing for Hurricane Ike relief in Galveston? I want to help, but I just can’t put my name on anything Bush…

    Anyway, fire, flood…. global warming hits home.

  5. I saw that this morning at the store. I chuckled a little. Glad to see it was not only me that thought it was funny.

  6. How sensationalist. Just how I keep seeing newspapers with pictures of the great depression. Sorry, but nobody is standing in line to get food. Grocery stores are full of food, and the prices haven’t been changing much. This is in no way parallel to the great depression.

    1. Grocery stores are full of food, and the prices haven’t been changing much.

      How’s the weather on Mars, anyway? Stores in some areas are rationing staples such as rice, and food prices have nearly doubled in the last two years.
