Tomorrow’s News Tonight

I know what you’ll be reading about in the Wall Street Journal tomorrow.

When the Great East Coast Quake of 2011 struck on Tuesday, I opted to be snarky. Upon reflection, I think I did a Google search and came up with a photo of a fallen plastic chair in a backyard.

Nothing ground breaking, right? But then I started seeing the photo on Facebook and messageboards. Other people found it just like I had.

Well, late this afternoon I received an email from a photo editor at the Wall Street Journal tasked with finding the hi-res original of the photo of “the chair turned over during the Earthquake that went viral.”

Well, I couldn’t help because I had simply lifted it from the web. But I think that WSJ readers can expect a story about a newly-famous fallen chair in the morning.
