Two ways of looking at time


Above, what you'll find at the top of the New York Times web page with Michelle Slatalla's recent essay.

Below, what appears at the end of the essay.


Here is my question: When I refer to something published online on one day and then read it in the next day's paper, what's the best way to reference it?

If I say "today's paper" and you click on the link and see yesterday's date, you'll say joe's losing his marbles even faster than was already evident.

Yet writing "published online yesterday" is cumbersome and awkward.

Suggestions are welcome from anyone who's got one.

Even more so if you don't.

Wait a minute....

How about "referenced on xx/xx/xx" date? Also cumbersome, I know.

Reference it to the print version first if there is one. Things get a little dicier even when an article has only been published online and not in print version. I don't care either way. I realized you'd lost your marbles a while back so this minutiae won't change anything. ;-)
