"I received a copy of the FYI section today that was completely black on the four outside pages. ... We get very grumpy when we can't see our television schedules or puzzles, and I had been looking forward to the food content today as well."
I heard from more than one reader who got one of these bad copies this morning. It's very unusual for sections that came off the presses like this to make it into home-delivery papers -- but it obviously happened this time to a relatively small number of copies. I made sure everyone got either a redelivery or a credit on their bills. But I understand how annoying it is, especially for you puzzlers.
