Collector's version of the Joel Plaskett cover

Glitch at the printing plant creates an eBay opportunity

Soon after today's 16th anniversary issue of the paper started hitting the street, we realized there's something kinda amiss with the cover. While it probably won't hit the Inverted Jenny level of fame, it's a pretty inauspicious way to start our 17th year of publishing. We're printing the right cover now, and will be delivering it soon. Meanwhile, if you want a break from the online version of today's paper, hunt around for copies of the wrong cover. A Joel Plaskett fan might just pay something for it on eBay. See if you can spot the differences between the two covers below.
