Look again
Upon my first glance at the front page of today, I could have sworn it was an April Fools issue, 12 days late. What did I see? Click on the image at the right to get see the full-size version and see if you can figure it out for yourself.

Basically, the front-page excerpts the beginning of each top news story below the links to their individual pages. In the excerpt from this story, that excerpt cut out at an undesirable point. The front page read:

University and city leaders gathered yesterday in East Rock Park -- property donated to the city by Yale over a century ago -- to announce that Yale will raise its annual voluntary contribution to the city, giving New Haven an additional $1.
In fact, the article continues "8 million this year," to make the total increase of the contribution $1.8 million, not a mere $1.

Still, that would have been a very funny article.
