I work in the fifth-worst career ... old-fashioned art ideas

My boss said this picture wasn't good as lead art on the front page because there's no people visible.



Tosh. I had an idea for a Page 1 design to get people above the fold but still use this as dominant art.

But, I wasn't asked, and to the degree I tried to "sell" something, I was ignored.


That's basically yet another reason why, within this job, a "newspaper romantic" who never should have gotten back in the business six-seven years ago after being out of it for a full decade before that is a major frustration. He has design ideas, and other things, often still frozen in the 1980s.
