That Valuable Media Exposure

Pity poor James Lileks! He gets his first big-time media exposure in the WaPo, and they can't even get the name of his book right!

Very little in "Home Desecrations" (Crown Publishers, $23.95) is protected, which is too bad. Sunglasses or blinders would have helped in viewing rooms he captioned as "the visual equivalent of granulated glass in your eyes."

Ah, but that's further down in the story. I see that they got it right in the second paragraph:

The book, "Interior Desecrations: Hideous Homes From the Horrible '70s," is a full-throated rant against the decade of shiny op-art wallpaper, plaid upholstery and long-haired rugs in a palette dominated by orange, green and brown, everywhere brown.

Still, this is why we need Big Media, eh? Editors.

Suggested anti-blog motto for the Old Media:

Whatever happens
We have got
Our editors,
And they have not.

Just keep repeating it 'til it's true.
