I finally got a copy of the "new" Orange County Register
yesterday, magically finding an extant copy in downtown San Clemente, and an amazing thing happened: it took me four minutes to read the paper, instead of the usual three. WOW, tens of millions of dollars spent to marginally upgrade the product! The front page section was still a collection of cobbled-together wire stories; the Local section, just a quick Mickadeit read and unreadable op-ed pieces. The only parts worth reading were the reviews of food critic Brad A. Johnson--but favoring El Farolito over 301 Cafe for great Placentia Cal-Mex
? WEAK SALSA...
And then their was their horrid college section. Every Monday through Wednesday, the Reg devotes a special pullout section each day to Cal State Fullerton, Chapman University, and UC Irvine, who just happen to have big ol' ads in said sections to the tune of nearly a million dollars.
