Mayor, elevator technician get the shaft

26Jun09

In the past, I’ve pointed out the unfortunate results when careless newspaper layout designers make poorly considered juxtapositions of headlines and/or photos.

Here’s a beauty of an example: the cover of today’s National Post, which has the headline MILLER TUMBLES IN POLL, which refers to sagging support for Toronto mayor David Miller, directly above the headline TECHNICIAN KILLED TRYING TO FREE 8 FROM ELEVATOR, which is about an Otis Elevators employee who fell down an elevator shaft to his death during a rescue operation.

Very tasteful, National Post. I only hope Miller didn’t tumble more than 40 stories in that poll.
