Collector's Edition


So maybe you've noticed by now that there was something different about the print version of this week's Weekly Planet.
Namely, that it wasn't called the Weekly Planet.
Thanks to some kind of universal brain fart, we accidentally ran this week's issue under the name of our sister papers in Atlanta and Charlotte, Creative Loafing, instead of our own.
The error was partly due to the fact that while the editing staffs for Tampa and Sarasota are in Florida, design and production for all four papers in the Creative Loafing chain is done in Atlanta. But such an error has never occurred before, and we here in Tampa should have been more alert.
For Tampa Bay residents who remember that the Planet actually used to be called Creative Loafing, we hope you enjoyed this blast from the past. And here's the irony: Come this fall, we actually will be changing our name back to Creative Loafing.
We just jumped the gun a little.
PS: Comments on the prospective name change (as well as this week's premature one) are welcome.
