Stupid Newspaper Tricks

Letterman has his stupid pet tricks, and usually you can get a good laugh out of stupid criminals, but here’s a stupid newspaper trick for you…

Lottery Post:
Maine’s Morning Sentinel newspaper appears to have revealed a lottery winner’s address and social security number in a published photo.

In a story that ran in the February 27 edition of the Sentinel, Newport resident Venison Turner Jr. was pictured together with his son, holding a copy of a winning ticket worth $300,000 and the paperwork filed with the Maine Lottery. The man’s personal information is clearly visible.

(I found this from the Freaknomics Blog…)
