Cartoon error from Sunday's Chronicle Herald
Spetember 24th, 2012:
I drew this on Friday before the NewPage mill deal fell apart. It says "NewPage Delayed" and "NS Power Rate Hikes" on the newspapers.
Late Friday the NewPage mill deal collapsed, my cartoon became obsolete. It was for Sunday's Chronicle Herald so I had time to change it.
On Saturday I changed the words on the newspapers to "NewPage not reopening" and "Mill deal collapses." After I changed it I thought the cartoon worked even better than the original.
I sent it to the Herald, but then the news changed again late Saturday, the mill deal is back on, so the Herald decided late in the day to run the original version, which was still obsolete but less obsolete than the second version. It was the better of two obsolete choices.
If I had time, I would have taken out the Nova Scotia Power reference, which makes no sense. And made other edtis. But it was a chaotic weekend for news.
