Killer Cookies

Many East Valley Tribune readers must have done double-takes after viewing this front-page teaser about a cookie story in today's paper.

"Grandma's kills wanted..." Do they mean human or road kills? And for a cookie recipe, possibly? Are those dark bumps in the pictured cookies chocolate chips -- or something disgusting and macabre?

A closer look reveals an "s" hidden among the cookies, which turns "kills" into "skills." It's a safe bet the Trib didn't do this intentionally, but the paper just might need more attention-getters like this in order to survive. -- Ray Stern
