Today's moment of irony

Page AA6 in today's Star Tribune contains an article about historic urban neighborhoods in Chicago disappearing due to zealous condominium developers. The same page devotes the same amount of space to three advertisements: one for a local fireplace installer, another for vinyl siding, a third for a home remodeling company. :-)


  1. That's as good as the Lincoln Journal Star page a few years back that had an ad for a local electrical contractor on the same page as a story about an execution by...you've got it...the electric chair. (I wish I could say I was making this up!)

  2. Wow - that's terrible. It's funny because it's horrifying.

    I now consider myself one-upped. Nicely done!
