Japan destroyed 

Some of the tsunami news coverage bears an eerie similarity to the awesome National Lampoon's Sunday Newspaper Parody published more than 25 years ago. Who can forget the Dacron Republican-Democrat? On the front page of that cultural icon (pdf), a three-column headline shouts "Two Dacron Women Feared Missing in Volcanic Disaster." Right underneath it, in teeny-weeny type, is a sub-head that tells the reader "Japan Destroyed."

Well, take a look at this headline in today's Des Moines Register. Heh.

You know what's crazy - I still have my copy of that paper and I was reading it -er- yesterday morning when I had to grab some reading material.

The SwillMart ad circular is a gem.
