News Judgment Bogey   

A reporter learns the hard way that not everyone has the movie "Caddyshack" memorized.

By Dan Wilcock
Dan Wilcock is a former AJR editorial assistant.     


After spending two days covering the annual Father's Day golf tournament in Roswell, New Mexico, reporter Gregory M. Jones wanted to write "something the golfers would enjoy" for the Roswell Daily Record.

So he penned a piece about an assistant greenskeeper named Carl Spangler, a name he thought "everyone would pick up" on as being the greasy, pitchfork-wielding, gopher-hole-detonating character Bill Murray played in the oft-quoted movie "Caddyshack."

In his story, Jones quotes Spangler--in the movie it's actually Carl Spackler--saying he's invented a new kind of grass that "you can play 36 holes on it in the afternoon, take it home and just get stoned to the bejeezus belt that night on the stuff." That's a direct line from "Caddyshack," which Jones, 24, has watched 50 times.

If the golfers enjoyed it, Jones' bosses surely didn't. On June 17, the day after the story appeared, Jones was surprised to be fired from his job as the Record's sports editor. "I didn't think anyone would get that bent out of shape about it," he says. "This was my first journalism job."

Mike Bush, the Record's editor, did not return numerous phone calls from AJR. But a correction the Record ran on the story says Jones was fired "for presenting the material as factual." Jones says that in the firing conversation, "Jayson Blair was mentioned."

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
