Time Trip-Ups and Ford FolliesPosted: January 24, 2006
Interesting post on Gawker yesterday:
Time’s cover this week is a largely glowing profile of Bill Ford, the environmentally inclined Ford Motor scion who, as the display type says, “believes a green revolution can fix his family’s troubled company.”
Also, Ford announced this morning that it will close 14 North American plants, which means laying off up to 30,000 workers.
The Time article was written by Dorinda Elliott. Who is a scion herself — a newsweekly scion, the daughter of legendary former Newsweek editor Osborn Elliott.
Also, she was laid off by Time Inc. just before Christmas.
And people say Time lacks irony.
Can you say “Bad Time-ing”?
p.s. I’m allowed some bad puns every once in a while…
