My former newspaper, the Nashua Telegraph, has a big story today about the opening of the new Star Wars movie (as does my current paper and every other paper in the contiguous United States). Alas, I expect Nashua to be picketed by enraged geeks, because the big feature headline says in enormous type:
Set Phasers to Fun
Yes, that’s right: They used a Star Trek reference on a headline about Star Wars. For a certain segment of the population, this is equivalent to headlining a story about Ernest Hemingway with a line from “The Great Gatsby,” or illustrating your feature package on Andy Warhol with a photo of Guernica.
