Holy cow, I'll say. Somebody's asleep at the switch!
I'm pretty sure that newspaper editors never actually read their own comics. They just look on them as space fillers with squiggly lines in them. It's enough to make me long for some yellow journalism...
Robert is right -- the editors don't see them. They're put on a page by someone in the backshop, along with Ann Landers and the Jumble. It's a page the newsroom doesn't have to deal with. Now, a bright backshop person might have caught this -- they've saved the editorial bacon more than once. But the page might have been done a few days earlier, at a point when the comic didn't seem important.
