Times as Post

Lena Dunham says she had to give up her dog Lamby because of behavioral issues, but an employee at the shelter where the writer got him disputes her claim.
That’s the front-page sidebar summary of a Friday New York Times article. Kinda like a Times version of the New York Post.

How might the Post do it? My best shot: Dunham Dumps Doggy — Shelter Bites Back!


11:30 a.m.: The real Post headline, which I just discovered: “Shelter says Lena Dunham’s dog tale doesn’t add up.” The headline in the Post URL: “Lena Dunham’s adoption story goes to the dogs.”

Thanks for the Julie's Diner tip... I am going to be in Syracuse at least twice, maybe three times in the next couple of months. I will stop in!

I think you’ll like it. And there’s some interesting signage in the environs.

Maybe Dunham was referring to her own behavioral issues, not the dog's.

Good one. I know there’s been more about this news item — I just haven’t bothered to keep up.
