For Times Headline Writers, the Night is Young

08/24/2011 3:34 PM |


Readers of this Sunday’s Times who first came upon the Sunday Styles section were treated to a story headlined “The Night is Young,” about party promoters in the Hamptons barely old enough to drink. Moving through the sections, readers might then have come across the Sunday Business section, with a lead story called “In Silicon Valley, the Night is Still Young.” Do the two sections not talk to each other, like the FBI and CIA pre-9/11? Or was the Business headline a dig at Styles? “Um, we were young first, and we’re still young.” We didn’t bother asking the Times, cuz we figure they have more important stuff to do, like cover what’s happening in Libya.
