The Dye Is Cast

Here, thanks, as usual, to Boingboing, is something interesting: a link to a series of six web-only stories (or "stories") from Penguin Books, told in unique ways. The most recent, "Hard Times", is a sort of graphical representation of the modern world in statistics and quotations and aphorisms.

Here's part of one of the pages.

Now you would think, or at least if you were me you would think, that Penguin Books would have a copy-editor on staff, and that that copy-editor would cast a glance at online books as well as the dead-tree kind. Apparently not, though.

"Dyeing". Not "dying". That's a whole different animal.
